The package usbmount might be what you need.

   The description of usbmount says:

	This package automatically mounts USB mass
	storage devices (typically  USB pens) when they
	are plugged in, and unmounts them when they are

Does this limit filesystems to FAT? FAT doesn't care if you rip it out without doing any cleanup. If you've formatted your thumbdrive as an ext2 filesystem, how can it be properly unmounted if you simply unplug it? Won't that mean you have to run fsck every time you plug it in again?
