Yes. There are fundamental differences between our usb kernel stack and
gphoto's assumptions.  I know of one person who has made it work, I think
it was Daniel O'Connor (If I remember the name right).  The biggest problem
was that you have to open *two* fd's to the camera (one for send, one for
recieve) vs. the single fd that serial and linux use.
