The need to mount fat32 volumes with rw permissions and explicitly specified user and group IDs seems to trip a lot of people up.

read and write permission for FAT32 partition in Ubuntu

Even though I know this it often trips me up because I forget my UID and GID and have to look them up. Not a big deal, but it would be nice if I could make mount use rw permissions and set UID and GID as the current user by default. Is this possible?
