Thus after the host controller hardware negotiates a slow connection,
then perhaps a udev rule might detect (see "lsusb -v"):
  bcdUSB < 2.00
    bInterfaceClass = 8 Mass Storage
    bInterfaceProtocol = 80 Bulk (Zip)
and raise a warning for me.  Or perhaps I should consider working with
the dbus, or (depending on the desktop environment) enhancing the auto-
mounting apparatus.  I really dislike USB storage at only 1.5MB/s.
