#146 Create a wrapper driver to access USB Mass Storage Devices



It would be nice to provide a wrapper to USB Mass
Storage Devices as a camera driver. This is nice,
because a program like gthumb or gtkam is very usefull
to import pictures, in the other way I have to always
use a script to cp using a prefix in the name, so it
doesn't overwrite the already existing pictures.

I was thinking in implement it, but I was confused
about how to deal with Camera, CameraFilesystem and
GpPort as i wouldn't need any of these.

It would be possible to completely ignore all of these
and use "/media/camera" as default that could be
overwrited by an environment variable.

What do you think? (I don't know if it makes sense to
other OSs, but for linux would be really great).

Thanks in advance,

    Now I realized that it's almost done. It's just a matter of
    changing the directory driver to allow a configuration of
    where to start looking at...

    that is something I started to work on. The idea is to make
    the Directory driver recognize mass storage camera devices
    and use this.
