What's wrong with just getting the author to add a couple of ttyUSB paths to 
the source, and doing a recompile i.e. sort it out properly? I could probably 
do this myself, but I don't really have any further interest in it - after 
finding out how slow it was to download the contents of a 128MB SmartMedia 
card via the connections provided by the camera, I've been taking out the 
card and reading the contents with an adaptor ever since.
