I think that's supposed to be handled by separate device-specific apps,
probably in response to an event issued by the generic USB support when
the device is recognized. For instance, a disk is handled by automount,
printers are handled by system-config-printer or possibly CUPS, wireless
by net-applet or NM, etc.
