User and group mount options for ext filesystems

I use ext3 on removable media simply because vfat is not an option (4 GiB limit), and ext2fsd on Windows works better than ntfs3g on Linux.

On those drives, permission bits are just a bother. For now I simply do chown and chmod recursively every time I mount on Linux, but this feature would make things much simpler.

I haven't used ext2fsd in *years*, and back then it had a tendency to cause a BSoD not infrequently, but what problems have you had with ntfs3g? I've always found it to be utterly dependable, and pretty fast besides.
