In some way, the libusb is precisely meant to hide these differences. 
Wherefore, a new question : is it possible to design a special libusb 
which, even though being a Linux type library, would translate into 
native NetBSD kernel USB calls.

Or should I implement a fake socket type Linux libusb, whose calls would 
be caught by a BSD demon listening on some port, who would then call the 
true libusb, and report the results ?
