10.5: Mount a partition or volume on demand
Authored by: tedw on Aug 12, '09 12:28:18PM

the main problem is that UUIDs only apply (so far as I can tell) to volumes formatted with HFS and HFS+. Windows-compatible volumes don't seem to have them, and I don't know about NFS or other formats (since I haven't made any to test). if you're only working with Apple file systems, then yes, UUIDs are certainly better and easier, but I don't think it generalizes.
