Looking good already!

Another brain storm item: I have an external hard disk which contains 
multiple partitions. Before I can remove the device, I must find out 
which partitions are on that specific disk and unmount all partitions 
separately from an alphabetical ordered list...

Utopia: If a device has only one volume, only display that volume and if 
there are more than one display the Manufacturer+device name (or any 
other udev variable which makes sense) and unmount all volumes present 
on that device...

This is step 2 in the application, but it might be interesting to keep 
such a feature in mind while writing the core functions...
