I like idea, but the path is [too] long.

It depends. I usually mount USB flash using pcmanfm, thunar or nautilus
then run krusader (doh, until now I didn't know how to mount USB sticks
using krusader) and work with the stick.

Nevermind, krusader like dolphin uses /media to mount USB sticks. So, I
assume in future releases of dolphin and krusader both will use udisks2
and therefore /run/media/USER/LABEL.
