AFAIK no. And if that would be the case, there would be no need for usb- modeswitch. If you're looking for a database of culprit hardware, then that _is_ usb-modeswitch-data. Dropping that pair from "all but unusual installations" leaves users with these culprit dongles in the blind without a way to know (or guess fwiw) that they would need "usb-modeswitch". Cheers, OdyX
