Hi all,

the default timeout passed to libusb of 30 seconds is quite a bit long. 
So recovering from errors is already quite annoying for some use cases. 
Now I have a situation where I expect an error to happen for some models 
and adjust the code-path of future commands due to this. An initial 
timeout for the error that might happen for 50% of the scanners attached 
is quite long ....

So I propose the hand libusb_timeout into the hands of the backend 
author. Does anyone see problems with this? (except of [tiny] API 
changes :-()
