The need to constantly review the source to work out exactly what
polkit allows is my primary reason to disable it.

You can use udev blkid and the mount options umask and uid= and a
umount sudo wrapper.

Or just mount via a button.

You may find spacefm or udevil more configurable but I haven't had
time to look into them fully.

I'll hunt out the link to my script and udev rules if need be but I
haven't polished it for general use.
