Dodgy hardware huh?
Yeah, the 'M' is also a USB jobby. I was thinking that it probably has the same
chipset as it's 11/13 brethern.
Also, if the 'M' isn't supported, there'd be a great reason to lend a hand,
since the underlying URB protocol would probably be quite similar, if not
exactly the same, with some trivial/non-trivial URB init changes, but, if the
hardware is naff, the hardware is naff.
Maybe I'll get the 'M' and by some other cheap hardware if it doesn't work,
might give me a good excuse to skip the pub and spend my Friday/Saturday/*
nights at home with an aterm and a compiler.
