But how would you refer to it by name? There might be several devices
of the same kind connected. But it's a bit annoying as is, I agree.
I think usbhidaction should be changed so it could just try and handle
all available uhid devices.
If you want a specific uhid number for your device you can always
pin it down by locators (either vendor&product or port number).
