    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?
