Hi Graeme,

I recently posted some of my findings on my blog at
http://colorhacks.blogspot.com/ - basically I discovered mcalib which
seems to be using libusb for driving the Huey. I haven't tested it -
although I have a Huey at home now.

But that's good news that the next release may include support for
cheaper colorimeters.
