These first two devices are not important (hiddev is a bit of a pain
to work with, and is linux-specific, so we use libusb)

libusb uses this in sarge, but later versions use
/dev/bus/usb/<bus>/<dev>. If you use the udev rule, it should set the
appropriate permissions automatically.

Let me know if you have requests for new features or bug fixes. I am
working on a solution for monitoring multiple SMARTPRO units, and
eventually we will improve the error messages regarding the USB device
