Dear readers,
this is small, but I lost the mailing about autofs with cdroms.
And maybe I'd have rather written here any way... To keep short:

Big Hurrays for the autofs authors: It's fantastic, and does do the dirty
job a very nice way. Still, I think that there should be a better way to
handle cdroms: whenever autofs forces the unmount, you'll loose all of
your cached directories, which is bad...
