Ahhh.. A dim light goes on.

It would have made more sense (I think) to call it "usb/client" instead of
"usb/device", but maybe that's just because I didn't understand what the
thing was all about.

(Ask Davem some day about my irrational hang-ups about naming, and how I
sometimes like the same code if it's just named differently ;)

In this case, the only reason I started really looking at the content was
that I didn't know what it was even supposed to do and was confused about
the naming, so I started looked at a few files. Which didn't really make
me go understand what it did, but _did_ make me puke.

Maybe the rest of it is wonderfully beautiful code, and I was just unlucky
in my selection ;)
