Bug#507630: nautilus: Is gnome-volume-manager obsolete with nautils 2.24.x?

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.24.1-1
Severity: important

Hi Joss,

as it it seems, nautilus >= 2.24 and gnome-volume-manager overlap in
functionality, as they both provide automounting of volumes.
If I go to Edit->Preferences->Media in nautilus, there is a
configuration tab for media handling (although here everything is greyed
out, which is probably a bug on its own).

I noticed, that gnome-volume-manager >= 2.24 has a configure flag

Should the pkg-utopia team upload such a g-v-m package with automounting
disabled and nautilus add a conflicts with g-v-m < 2.24.0?

How shall we proceed from here, to ensure a smooth upgrade?

Should we let die g-v-m completely, is nautilus a 100% substitute?
