E.g. who is making sure the disk is unmounted before it is unplugged (yanking it out whilst mounting/fsck'ing does not sound like a good idea btw)?
Yeah, I found this out, of course nothing is psychic and can prepare for that but you do normally get a safely remove option (I haven't mainly because I couldn't be bothered to dig any deeper into udev. It would be easier to create just that part from scratch, I think). I am using flush etc. but haven't fully tested it on all the filesystem types I may use yet. I do prefer it showing me how long it takes to copy rather than saying it's done ages before it has like on my standard udev boxes. It may even be that users are more likely to yank out prematurely (bar completed) with the standard setup atleast the first time with the corrupt or missing file teaching them to get an OK first.
