Just double checking: you're aware that VirtualBox 4.0 includes full USB 
1.1 support (USB 2.0 devices are "converted")? This is a significant 
change from earlier releases. Only the virtual USB 2.0 controller is not 
available, it's part of the extension pack. Or are you talking about an 
open source virtual USB 2.0 controller?

So there is already quite a bit USB "sample code".
