I'll be looking at comms coding at some point, but more important is 
making sure that I can run legacy arcane protocols- hence my interest in 
DOSemu, which is good enough to run things like EPROM blasters.

Does anybody use libusb-win32? If so could I have a copy of the unpacked 
binaries- I've got NT4 systems here which do have USB low-level drivers 
but the installer insists on NT5 and I don't want to start working out 
how to rebuild them.
