Sure, it would be good to do this with liblkid, although the basic
idea could be implemented in mount even without it; you could just
have it dispatch to the right version of /sbin/mount.* by looking at
the type information in /etc/fstab, and in that case, the call to
liblkid could be done in /sbin/mount.auto, if Andries wanted to keep
mount comfortably dumb, stupid, and simple.  :-)

The question is, what division of labor makes the most amount of sense?
