"Too much".  USB is horrible from this persective; you need quite a lot
of infrastructure to do, well, pretty much anything over USB.  Take a
look at the code sometime.  In the particular case of the console,
you'd also have to figure out what to do with the console if the
hardware goes away.

It's one of the reasons I dislike USB, and closely related to most of
the others.
