I was exactly at the same point, knowing that we need to add this rule at
nut (or PSP) install time, and also that some Novell/SuSE release might have
switched to /dev/bus/usb... The mechanism in SuSE is the least extensible
I've seen so far.

I've not yet had time to do so, but it's on my todo list for the next round
(the workaround will do the trick meanwhile).
