    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.
