Oh, yes it's, but actually I prefer and use autofs for media I know.
I want something like what pcmanfm offers for unknown media.  BTW,
systemd requires some trick for auto umounting (way simpler with
autofs suing time to umount).

I do use autofs as I said, but I'm looking for something that makes me
aware of new media available, and allows me to mount/umount it at will
without root permissions, and without having me know what that media
