What are the distinguishing features of unmount, Safely Remove Drive, and
Eject?

Although it is from a few years ago, the material at

   https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=598690

could still be useful. Safely Remove Drive and Eject are associated
with DEs, although Xfce seems to manage without them and has unmount as
an only option.

Just got a chance to look at it, has points in common with my problem.
It, and related bugs, will be worth a detailed read.
I'm suspecting that there were explicit choices made that I wouldn't.
Or, to paraphrase a truism, "You can satisfy some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not satisfy all of the people all of the time."

That explains a lot. Will have to wait till this afternoon to read your reference.
