    8: 
    9: - Provides a namespace
   10: - mount / unmount for unprivileged users, by internal function
   11: - or, by external program that extends functionality
   12: - program is a safeguard, filesystem autodetection, fsck
   13: - amd is old but smart, conditional mounts, wildcards
   14: - Finally just access filesystem on a wedge by using the wedge name
   15: 
   16: # Missing?
