Looks good, thanks.  Committed.

Hmmm... I want to look at this code a bit and come up with a better way
to factor it out and make sure I move it to the right place.  But the
end game will be that you can easily call the isValidFoo() method and
assume that works.

Sounds good.  

Another thing I thought of this morning is that for this to be really
useful, mount is going to need the "find the labels" for the other fs's
-- I'm not sure which filesystems mount currently supports mounting by
label, but we probably want to make sure that any of them that anaconda
labels by default can actually be mounted that way :-)

Cheers and thanks again,
