The package looks nice, but it to use /proc/bus/usb, which seems to be
deprecated nowadays (it isn't mounted on my system).
I haven't investigated that much, but I thought I should warn you before
you invest too much time in this tool.
Also, the package description should be reviewed. It should mention that
the tool provides low level (technical details) of the devices.
