mount removable devices as normal user
pmount is a wrapper around the standard mount program which permits normal
users to mount removable devices without a matching /etc/fstab entry. This

project and confines the amount of code that runs as root to a minimum.
If a LUKS capable cryptsetup package is installed, pmount is able to
transparently mount encrypted volumes.
