It can be used for authenticating mountable operations, such as loop mounting files, hard drive partitions or server locations. It can also be
used to ask the user questions or show a list of applications preventing unmount or eject operations from completing.

objects – for example it is also used in start and
Users should instantiate a subclass of this that implements all the various callbacks to show the required dialogs, such as
GtkMountOperation. If no user interaction is desired (for example when automounting filesystems at login time), usually
null can be passed, see each method taking a MountOperation for details.
