The best way to handle stuff like this I found is to use lables.
Stick e2lables on all your filesystems and mount them by lable.
If you sort the drives differently (like when adding a drive), the
lables will be the same and everything works fine.
Only problem would be swap.
I though about using disk lables to create
/dev/discs/<disk lable>/partX and
/dev/discs/<disk lable>/<partition lable>, but never got around to do
