DockDisks is an unsupported hack that causes disks to auto-mount in the Dock. This can be handy if you want to put your dock on the right side of the screen but want to avoid the conflict for space with the disk icons on the desktop. It can also help avoid the problem of desktop icons becoming covered up by open windows.

DockDisks is a hack, and as such it is obviously not perfect. The main caveat is that the Dock is quit and relaunched when the list of disks is refreshed, because the Dock has no API for adding/removing items, and thus has to be relaunched to refresh its settings. However, DockDisks does do its job, which is to put your disks in the dock.
