With the move to Subversion, there's a significantly lower technical barrier 
to renaming files in the tree, especially if they exist only in HEAD.  Let's 
assume that, when the time comes to remove the old USB implementation, we will 
do whatever renaming of directories, files, and symbols that may make sense. 
That is to say, let's leave the names as-is and focus on the semantics.
