Ebuild with 'suid' USE flag for sys-fs/fuse-exfat based on latest fuse-exfat and ntfs3g ebuilds.
sys-fs/ntfs3g has a 'suid' USE flag to allow nomal users to mount NTFS volumes. The sys-fs/fuse-exfat package could use the same USE flag as well.
This sounds like a bad idea. Doesn't /bin/mount already handle this based on the "user" option in fstab?
I don't remember the exact reasoning why it is implemented in ntfs3g. I faintly recall that there used to be extra warnings in the ntfs3g ebuild's post_install() when 'suid' was enabled.
