It does automount it-- in /media/[cardname], owned by root. FAT32 is no good 
for files over 3.9 GB, and I would rather use a real filesystem anyway. So I 
use ext2. 

According to man udev you can set permissions in udev rules, and the lords of 
udev have been nattering at us for years that is the True and Correct Way, 
and all others are folly. Yeah whatever. I have used something like your 
fstab hack before, spose I can try it again.
