Mounting USB memory stick problem

Question to clarify:

if the mount option is set to auto, the system would attempt to mount at
boot time whether or not the device is plugged in; right?  The other
question is is there a way to have the mount take place automatically
when you plug the device in later?  I'm thinking one would have to
modify the USB hotplug stuff to invoke the mount command.
