I have the case of the untrusted third party source & control.  The repos
and .mrconfig files sit on a drive that I don't control. It is a set of
work projects so there is a need for others to be able to access the files
(i.e. when I'm not there) but equivalently I don't want to trust a
.mrconfig to use my user/pass to do a mount.

I guess I could build a local dir with a trusted .mrconfig and then under
that have some link to the shared folders, etc... but that just felt clunky
when I first thought about it.
