There are serious issues with the permissions model, which were raised
in Strasbourg and AFAIK never addressed.
There are complaints from other developers (Warner, for one) that their
reviews were ignored.

That's untrue - I dropped the issue because I thought thompsa@ was
working on it, but he didn't touch the userland parts. I have a
3,000-line diff for libusb20 which no longer applies due to intervening
changes. Looking at the updated code, I'm still concerned about the
widespread use of obufscated pointer arithmetic - the LIBUSB20_ADD_BYTES
macro, for instance, is even worse now than when I last looked at
