Something like this really is needed, if one wants to replace the use of the famously patent-encumbered VFAT with a free alternative in removable media! For these, the UID should really be completely ignorable: When reading, the "uid=" option should remap everything to the given UID, not just files with zero UID. When writing, the UID on the media should probably be set to nobody (99), not root.
