No, but colour me interested too.  Thanks for the pointer.

Copying this to Brooks, who started that thread in 2005 with a patch for 
phidgets 2.0, which left me wondering if anything has become of that in 
the 2.1 linux sources, which I'm just grabbing.

I'm generally interested in whether linux applications using libusb are 
more likely than not to work on FreeBSD, operational differences between 
libusb on FreeBSD and linux, and whether our new USB stack has changed 
anything in that equation at all?

Also wondering if 
linux software might be expected to work 'well enough' on FreeBSD 7?
