Herbert correctly pointed out that adding the usb-storage module to
usb-modules implies that usb-modules will have to depend on
scsi-modules.  I didn't think this would be a problem since
scsi-modules was part of Marvin's images.  However, it would be good
if you could comment on this.  Personally, I certainly think
usb-storage is important since laptops without built-in CD-ROM are
increasingly common.
