PySDM be installed by default. Many users still use ntfs.

PySDM is a Storage Device Manager that allows full customization of hard disk mountpoints without manually access to fstab.
It also allows the creation of udev rules for dynamic configuration of storage devices

As Mint is more oriented towards newbies, I think encluding this software will be another plus point of Mint. Promoting this idea...

Thank you for introducing me to this tool, I have never heard of it before. It is extremely interesting, and I have just installed it (btw it runs on debian version as well although you have to start it from a terminal). However it is also very advanced and not suitable for a default installation. Mint is meant to be a beginners distro and most beginners would not have the slightest idea how to use this program. I am not sure I do either - yet. Another reason for rejecting it is because a decent file manager would do most of the things it can anyway including mounting ntfs read/write. A very interesting tool though.
