      Description

      The manage_mountpoint parameter for the Mount type will create the mountpoint directory with limited permissions if it is missing prior to mounting and the attribute is set to true. It will also remove the mountpoint after unmounting if the parameter is set to true. Default value for attribute is false.

      Since this resolves the File[mountpoint directory] --> Mount[mountpoint directory] --> File[directory permissions] circular dependency that formerly was worked around with an exec for File[mountpoint directory], we can now also implement an autobefore of Mount[mountpoint directory] --> File[directory permissions]. I encourage discussion over the worthwhileness (probably not a word) of that proposal.
