[PLUG] Hide sshfs Desktop icons but not others?

I'm trying to find a way to hide Desktop icons for sshfs but not USB 
keys, CDs, music players, etc. in Gnome/Nautilus.

I tend to use sshfs mounts from the CLI for semi-permanent stuff and I 
don't want to be bothered with the clutter on my desktop.  But I *do* 
want to see USB and other removable stuff pop up, so the most common 
Google hit for turning off the Nautilus "show_deskop" setting like this 
kills all of them, which is more than I want:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop --type bool 1 
suggests a 
/usr/local/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/95userpolicy/10ignore-disks.fdi file, 
and I created one listing '/dev/fuse' but that didn't work.  I did 
restart HAL but did not reboot, and I'm not 100% sure that '/dev/fuse' 
is the right thing.

Other solutions suggest mounting to a .dir which didn't work, or 
mounting to /mnt instead of /media, which is not a solution for me since 
I want to mount in $HOME anyway.

Anyone have another idea?
