Questions not answered in the bug report:
1) What is an actual issue solved by libusbx that is present in libusb?
2) Is it a drop-in replacement that is API-compatible or (better)
ad 1) I guess there are such issues, otherwise the libusbx people
wouldn't have been angry enough to make a fork. This point requires
ad 2) If it is ABI-compatible, there is no harm in switching right now,
as libusbx = libusb-1 + active development + more bugfixes. If it is
only API-compatible or partially incompatible, we would need a strong
reason to actually switch.
