This is _done_ already.

>From man mount_msdos:

     -s      Force behaviour to ignore and not generate Win'95 long filenames.

     -l      Force listing and generation of Win'95 long filenames and sepa-
             rate creation/modification/access dates.

             If neither -s nor -l are given, mount_msdos searches the root di-
             rectory of the filesystem to be mounted for any existing Win'95
             long filenames.  If no such entries are found, -s is the default.
             Otherwise -l is assumed.
