I have to admit this sounds like it could screw up the system if not done
right - particularly because the solaris packaging system is unlikely to
allow me to remove the libusb package if many things are dependent on it.

Are there any other options - e.g. doing something with the libusb that
ships with solaris - are we sure it doesn't support timeouts?

I think I found some code relating to it here:
