"Ejecting" USB flash drives

Since thunar switched to udev, the "unmount" action has been replaced 
with an "eject" action which unfortunately removes the drive from the 
list in the left-pane menu.

I do not want that; I want the USB flash drive in my list as long as it 
is physically attached to the computer. "Eject" is wrong here anyway, 
you can't eject it like you can a CD or DVD. How can I revert this 
annoying behaviour?

@thunar-dev: If this is only possible via patching the sources, I'm very 
willing to do it this way.
