Using autofs -media map with a decent DE

I upgraded my desktop machine  from 10.1 to 10.2-RC2. I love the new 
autofs master map type of -media.
 From the command line, I can reach my pendrives and other removable 
media. But I'd like to know, how
to integrate this mechanism into a DE? I use XFCE, but I'm interested 
in GNOME or KDE, too. Integration:
- it means here - when I push a thumbdrive in, I'd like to see a new 
icon (or more icons, if there are more
mountable partitions on the media) on the desktop of the DE; and of 
course, clicking on that icon, the DE
should open the filemanager with the mounted directory of that media); 
and the other way, most modern
DE's filemanager has an "umount" function - so I'd like to know how to 
use them with autofs - if at all,
