How to specify automount options without /etc/fstab


A user of mine has Xfce 4.8.3 (I believe - it's the default version that came with the distro) on Xubuntu 12.04.1

I would like to set up his computer so that when any volume is about to be automounted, if the volume is ext4, then the volume is mounted with certain options specified by me.  Any other automounted volumes can be automounted according to the system defaults. 

I don't want to use the conventional way of specifying volume label, block-device name, and/or mount point in the /etc/fstab file.  The volume in question will be connected by USB, and any of those 3 attributes of it may change. 

Would I have to replace "thunar-volman" with something else in order to modify the automounting process as I'm proposing?  Or is there a way to have a script intercept automounts before they get to "thunar-volman", whilst letting thunar-volman handle all automounts that my script doesn't handle? 

Thank you for any help.
