Mac OS X libusb 1.0 native HID backend

I do not have a Mac. However, I think it may be a good idea to
have an HID backend for libusb 1.0 on Mac OS X as well.
Linux has the easier kernel driver detaching function. Windows
now has a native HID backend. For FreeBSD 8+, there is a
ugen driver associated with each HID interface as well. So for
them you do not need to do much to use libusb 1.0 for the
HID device now.
But for Mac OS X, you still need to use the ugly codeless
kext for the HID device if you want to use libusb. The native
Mac OS X HID API seems to be as capable as the Windows
one, so I think this is certainly possible.
I think this will benefit libhid as well if they move to libusb 1.0.
