This is going to apply to a *lot* of devices, so adding adding all of
the devices individually seems like it would be a losing battle.  If I'm
wrong, or if it's worth doing anyway, I'd certainly be willing to do the
code. There might be a way to tell that this needs to be done from the
usbconfig info, or even from the contents of the ISO, but I don't see
it. Maybe if I look deeper into the USB descriptor encodings I'll find
something. I'd be happy to accept advice.

At the very least, I'll document whatever I do so other people can
imitate it.

Be well.
