I didn't get the mount rewrite in on tuesday because testing revealed yet 
another can-o-worms in umount requiring rewriting, but I'm banging on it now.  
I'm happy to get test cases where the old mount/umount behave badly, or 
suggested new features.  Actual patches don't help so much because the new 
code looks nothing like what's currently in SVN, and yes I realise this needs 
to be fixed pronto. :)
