So you have absolute control on which device gets detected by the kernel
at which exact moment? That's a cool trick indeed, you really need to
teach me how to do that.

Unless you have radically modified things from the way the kernel works
by default, a lot of things already happen on your servers when a usb
device is inserted (the kernel notices the device and loads a driver,
udev (if it's running and not modified) creates the relevant device
nodes, etc).

I agree that automatically mounting usb sticks or such on servers would
be more than silly, and haven't suggested that (neither have the upstart
and systemd upstream developers, as far as I'm aware).
