FYI: in afpfs-ng-0.4.1, you don't have to give the password as a
parameter (as this is insecure).  If you use:

afp_client mount -u myusername -p - server:volume /mountpoint

It will prompt you for your password.

I'm concentrating on getting a gnome-vfs2 implementation for afpfs-ng
so that it will all be seamlessly integrated into nautilus.
