usbd's present behaviour when reading usbd.conf is to scan from top to

What if it was changed to use the last, most specific match? That is,
the last match with the most of (product, vendor) specified.
The idea is that it makes it programmatically easy to add new entries to
the file - just place them at the end. Presently that won't work because
of the generic catch-all
device "USB Device"
in the default usbd.conf.
I know this would be useful to me, so I'm just looking for somebody to
say "yeah maybe".
I'm working on getting devd(8) usable for usb devices.
Seee http://www.bwct.de/usb-devd.patch for the current status.
devd.conf(5) is far more flexible then usbd.conf.
But devd is a 5.x thing.
