libraries are supposed to make things easier and hopefully clearer by creating useful abstractions that hide complexity.

to my eye, libusb is failing utterly to do this.

perhaps this is a failing of the USB spec. it appears to be full of dragons.

I'm testing a new USB I/O card for Tux2, the coin-op game I am working on. It's wonderful in that it uses the HID spec to appear to the system as a pair of ordinary joysticks, but there's a set of outputs I need to address, and because the card is new (I literally have serial numbers 01 and 02), there isn't a library I can call -- I have to speak USB.
