	Hm, I don't think it's likely anytime soon since its a UHID
and not a uaudio (though they specifilcally had telephony in mind when
desining the uaudio spec!)

	But first: How much did it cost?  Can you give us the
descriptor output, use the testlibusb program in libusb port, it's
built but not installed. (If anybody knows an easier way to get the
descriptor please tell me!)
