I'm not the OP or anybody that has participated in this thread so far.

I don't know whether I want to comment or not.

I'll say that the wiki page gave no hint as to which of the three options to 
install, or any hint that one might work better than another.  Of course, 
until this issue came up, no one may have expected one to work better than 
another, so then someone reading that page could, quite appropriately, try one 
and not the others, and assume that there was no more useful information on 
the page.

Someone with a more experimental nature might have tried all three, but, like 
I hope I implied, why would anyone expect that to make a difference?

I guess maybe I'm doing the same thing some others seem to do--belaboring a 
point that maybe shouldn't have even come up as issue.

If someone read the page and didn't find / recognize a key piece of information 
on that page, maybe the page could use a revision.

If it was because no one previously recognized something (like that pmount, 
udevil or udisks2 might each behave slightly different, and that, therefore, 
one might work when another might not), that would seem like another reason to 
consider a revision of the page.

To argue about the subject just makes the list seem unfriendly, to newbies as 
well as "oldbies". ;-)
