hmm, looking at libdetect myself I found it to be little more than some
/proc/ processing c-code in many cases.  It is fairly moular (i.e. just
pull in pci.o if that is all you want.)  I'll agree that some of
libdetect's data structres aren't optimized for exactly what you are doing
here, but these defeciencies are on the order of 8 bytes per supported
