How can we improve Azure Cloud Shell?

Unable to mount persistent storage

Here's the scenario (that you can reproduce):
- User logged in to Azure portal (commercial cloud). User has role 'reader' assigned at the subscription level.
- User clicks the ;Cloud shell' button in the portal, goes to advanced settings, picks a subscription, existing storage account, picks a name for the Azure file share
- Cloud Shell starts but fails to mount Azure file share - see attached image

Now, user gets 'owner' role in a specific Resource Group, and wishes to setup persistent storage for Cloud Shell under a new Storage Account in this new RG, but
a) the Cloud Shell button in the GUI portal goes straight to Cloud Shell with no option to revisit the setup interface
b) The PSCloudShellUtility module does not have a Mount-CloudDrive cmdlet (oddly enough it has a dismount-clouddrive, but no way to mount a cloud drive) - see image 11

Please provide a way to mount a cloud drive if one is missing
