Other than what Søren said, atausb works with some USB flash readers
where umass does not (and probably the other way around).  E.g. my HP
USB printer has a flash reader which works fine with atausb but
doesn't work with umass.  It could probably be fixed for umass, but I
don't really see any reason for me to use time on it.
