That takes care of usb drives where you have NTFS and exFAT file system you want to access. That not what the blog posts is talking about.
There are other types of usb devices, such as printers, scanners, cameras, wireless network devices and what not. ntfs-3g does not handle any of them, unless they also have a file system accessible by usb.

His idea is to have some sort of notification that a new hardware device is plugged in, and if the device is not supported by the currently installed packages, figure out which package you need to install, and give the user a button to click that will install it.
