Independant of that, I can see a number of uses for the CUSE code. One
would be emulating /dev/pilot for old palm pilot software that things it
wants to talk to a serial port, yet really a libusb userspace program
can handle all of the data to the USB device instead.

So don't think that just because this userspace-OSS implementation is
"not what should be done" that CUSE shouldn't be viable.
