    Maybe it's a case of Poe's law.

      I thought that ChromeOS is only supported on a few select devices so there's not much to gain by reusing hardware-dependent bits from it? Or does Google maintain a master list of commonly used peripherals unrelated to Chromebooks themselves?

        Well, I'm not lucky then.

        There was this player with Arch in its name, and every time it made a frag it'd say "btw I use Arch". How annoying!

But because the tool that actually performs that management happens to be distributed under the loose systemd brand, then the usual suspects report for duty and immediately see some sinister conspiracy, probably trying to take away their God given freedom to have dysfunctional USB or something.

          It depends on whether said tool will perform well or not (it seems that it will be the former though)

            All of these devices are either made by Google or used inside Chromebooks, so I don't think it will help other devices much.

            It might make it easier for when Google switches to using SystemD in Chromebooks in a few months time, though...

              There is a huge list of device ids in libmtp as well.
              The problem is not that the devices don't have the feature. It is that some devices are crap and buggy.
