[Thunar-dev] thunar-volman and extra mount options

I've installed thunar-volman, and it does its work, but it mounts devices
without some options (utf8 in my case). As I've figured out, volman uses
exo-mount to mount devices. Is there a way to pass any additional mount options
to it?

I created file /etc/hal/fdi/policy/preferences.fdi with following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match key="linux.hotplug_type" int="3">
        <match key="volume.fstype" string="vfat">
                <append key="volume.mount.additional_options"
type="strlist">iocharset=utf</append> <append
key="volume.policy.mount_option.codepage=866"type="bool">true</append> <append
</match> </match>

No effect for my usb-stick. Will this feature be supported?
