One important characteristic of USB is -- while it is *damn* slow --
that it's possible to reserve a portion of the bandwidth for one device,
for instance for a webcam. I think this is essential for a bus like USB,
and this cannot be done with ethernet. (ATM can do that, though. But I
don't think we will see ATM on the desktop anytime soon. ;-))

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many
ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
