Well.  All this talk of the Ondes Martinot and chainsaws have made me  
reconsider the performance art potential for the Catz / Gametrak  
controller.   When I plug it in, the OS X USB device manager knows its  
name, but (not surprisingly) chuck --probe doesn't show it.  Can  
anyone offer pointers on what I have to write to make it recognized as  
an HID device under OS X?
