Package: usbview
Version: 1.0-11
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I am using the ubuntu kernel for Intrepid and it doesn't work... there
is no /proc/bus/usb/devices file, and from reading previous bugs against
this package there is no one who cares that this package doesn't
actually work.

I'd like to see it either fixed, or removed from the archives.

If nothing else whoever reads this: tag it won't/can't fix.
