I'm all for this and certainly could use USB support, but I think it's 
probably a good idea to connect with a dev who'd be interested in doing 
the actual work.  Then if necessary, we could provide contact info to 
the engineer at CircuitCo.

A bunch of us (including Brett) are involved in the FBSD-arm list 
already, so it might be a good idea to find out the route to getting it 
done, and who might be interested...

I know how a 'bounty' works, but in this context, getting a sense of the 
path might be a useful first step.

And if $100 is the perceived bar of entry, then it's not exactly 
conducive to an array of people contributing...

my $0.02.
