	I'd be willing to look into writing this code, but since you're
familiar with the apc-upsd code and the NetBSD USB code, could you give a
brief explanation of what, exactly, you think needs to be done?

} I do :)
} apcupsd-3.10.X is missing code for the *BSD USB, it has to be written.
} In addition, 3.10 requires some kind of threads. I got it working on
} NetBSD 2.0 with a serial UPS, but it doesn't work on 1.6.x (i.e. it doesn't
} work with pth). This is the main reason why I didn't upgrade pkgsrc to 3.10.x
} yet.
