comment Automounting plugged devices in linux
I usually use fstab (/etc/fstab), it seemed like the easiest thing to do (no extra dependencies). Although autofs seems like the way to go if you want to spare some resources.

comment How to find binary executables within a directory
I'd say use find -type f -executable -exec sh -c "file -i '{}' | grep -q 'x-executable; charset=binary'" \; -print. It will only give you files (and thus can be passed to the next command he wants to run)
