I'm considering that, but it looks like you'll have to have all
your device nodes statically made [like nowadays] and don't play _at
all_ with the plug order into the hub port's once you've got your
system set up; in other words: crappy, it breaks USB's spirit.

Also thinking about an interface to a kernel side database to be
able to minimize this problem.
