I mostly feel the same way, but the past shows us that there are many  
USB-to-serial converters that at first glance look similar, but do  
have incompatible differences when looking closer. Since the  
subdrivers are only small pieces of code now that we have  
is_usb_device_supported() to select a specific subdriver from a list  
of VID:PID entries, I don't think this a problem anymore.

The risk of breaking existing devices worries me a lot more than  
duplicating maybe 20 lines of code.
