Subject/etc/fstab.d yes or not

I'd like to add support for /etc/fstab.d to libmount. The library is
currently used by mount, umount and mount.nfs. The goal is to use it
on more places.

The /etc/fstab.d directory has been requested by people who maintains
large number of mountpoints etc.

The directory is not replacement for /etc/fstab, it's additional place
where you can describe your filesystems.

The disadvantage is that the stuff in the directory will be invisible
for some tools (udisks, systemd, ...), so I have very vocal
disagreement from some people who don't want to see /etc/fstab.d at all.

BTW, systemd allows to define addition mountpoints in
systemd.mount(5) unit file(s), so we already have additional place
for fstab stuff...

Commands? Objections?
