FSTAB automatically edited

A nice tutorial for automatically editing FSTAB using PySDM
Here a quote of that website:
GUI Fstab Editing with PySDM
Storage Device Manager - Worry-Free Fstab Configuration
Storage Device Manager provides an easy, non-technical GUI method to make changes to mounting options without manually editing any files. It does for mounting partitions what StartUp-Manager does for editing grub's menu.lst. Storage Device Manager (PySDM) allows the full range of options available to those who manually edit fstab while simplifying the steps so that even beginners will feel comfortable making the same changes through Storage Device Manager. You no longer have to wonder if relatime is really the correct spelling.
EDIT 091213: PySDM appears rather old, though it still works- pySDM does not reference drives/partitions by their UUID or Volume Label, the preferred method for referencing drives and partitions in your fstab file. PySDM appears to refer to partions with the /dev/sda1, /dev/sdb2, etc method.
The issue with this method is that if you repartition your drive, add/remove partitions, add/remove hard drives in your system, the /dev/sdXY (X= a,b,c,... and Y = 1,2,3,...) references may all move around, referring to different partitions and drives after the drive/partition editing. For us DIY'ers, this issue can crop up often. For someone who doesn't change their drives/partitions often, the /dev/sdXY fstab referencing method is fine, so pySDM is still useful.
