|The whole point is that xtdesk is loaded by default, and I think adding mount icons would spare more performance than a Lua box|
That presumes the recent version of xtdesk doesn't add any more overhead, which is doubtful just from the fact that it has this particular feature (and how many more?) that the version in DSL doesn't. Newer versions with more features generally grow, not shrink. Even if it makes a slight difference, DSL's use of lua is so pervasive that the mount app is trivial in terms of its overhead.
|Lua is a compile-in-live (sorry, don't remember the actual word)|
Interpreted. The performance of interpreted languages like lua and tcl, particularly in small scripts for simple tasks, is on par with compiled languages.
