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.
