gnome-volume-manager mount options for removable devices

When not adding mount options to /etc/fstab for my removable devices,
once plugged they get mounted properly under /media, but unfortunately
they don't get mounted with the sync option and it's a must when
trying to put images and music to my mobile phone.

I know I can add an entry to /etc/fstab overriding
gnome-volume-manager options. Unfortunately the mobile phone sometimes
it's located at /dev/sde1, sometimes at /dev/sdf1, and even sometimes
at /etc/sda1. Putting options for all those files in /etc/fstab
pointing to the same mount point would probably work, but would
definitely be an ugly solution.

I'd be glad to know if there's any way to tell gnome-volume-manager to
always mount removable devices with the sync option, so /etc/fstab
entries are not needed.

Any ideas welcome.

Cordially, Ismael
