It claims to be one (albeit a pretty generic one according
to the descriptor dumps in Stephen's mail), and there is
no indication that there is some specific bug which suggests
not treat it as one.
I guess the OpenBSD people just wanted to keep the uhid
driver out, to make the Linux stuff work out of the box.
I'd assume that it would just work to send the 8/64 byte
datablocks defined in the Python script to the uhid device
through USB_SET_REPORT ioctls.

This bould be just a waste of memory. The device can identify
itself good enough because it implements the string descriptors
