Sudo is used so that mounts aren't owned by root (or whatever user
udevd is running as). I know setting it to my user is somewhat
flawed, but hey; the joy of single-user machines.

If someone wanted it would be quite easy to make a shell script to
set the user according to who was logged in. It could even wrap
around mount to remove the pmount dependency. But as I say, it's
simple and works for me, so I'm quite happy not to touch it :-)
