That's a good question. I don't have an opinion yet, but note that
usb-modeswitch since 0.9.6-2 tries to be clever and provides
a /e/u/rules.d/usb_modeswitch.rules which renders its manual launch useless
by being run at plugin time. It has some glitches (aka there are different
devices with same idVendor:idProduct which need different commands) but
mostly work with 'some' configuration.

usb-modeswitch.rules has no number and as such, no pre-defined precedence on
other rules. It supposes that it will be the only one acting on those

Because I think that a Conflict is overkill, I would go on without Conflict
and see what happens. If we (either on ozerocdoff or on usb-modeswitch) get
bugreports that some devices are wrongly detected by usb-modeswitch and
should better be used with ozerocdoff (or the opposite), we will jointly
decide at that time (either by fixing the bug directly in the concerned
package or by making them Conflict).

What do you think ?
