native 0 means that anything that ends up with both is probably trouble.

Assuming the packages work that seems like the way to go. One other useful thing would be to make the problem easier to diagnose. Some sort of warning in the libusb1 package makefile that emits some sort of warning if LIBUSB_TYPE is not set to compat so at least a user has a breadcrumb trail to follow to get rid of the conflict?
