Comment(by pgf):

 our WeDo device was returned, so i was able to test it as well.  it's

 there's a typo in the rule i recommended, above.  it should be:
 SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", SUBSYSTEM!="block", DRIVER=="", MODE="0666"

 given daniel's recent change to the lego rules (olpc-utils ac7a48) i'm
 reluctant to say it's sufficient, however.  (i don't fully understand how
 that change accomplished what it says it accomplishes.)

 also, one device i don't have that would be good to verify is the
 legousbtower, since it does have a kernel driver.  i don't think it will
 be picked up by this rule, so perhaps we need the other pair of rules, as
 well as this one.  verification from the butia folks would be good, too.
