IMHO it would be a good idea to support copying some example scripts
to the HOME dir as it's done similar when creating a new user
in some Linux distributions. That would be very convenient for
the normal user. I'm thinking of sth. like .profile, .cshrc, .vimrc

This would imply asking for a HOME dir (or setting one by default).

I agree. I would like to see that binary is the default mount
method for the mount command and creating text mounts only by 
giving a `-t' option.
