Yes, but it doesn't constitute modifying WinPcap to handle USB, it
constitutes modifying it to handle your device. "Modifying
libpcap/WinPcap to handle USB" means modifying it to capture raw USB
traffic for the purposes of analyzing that traffic (which has already
been done for Linux).

Unfortunately, there isn't one. See my mail message to the
tcpdump-workers mailing list, in response to an earlier mail of yours to
that list, on how to add support for additional devices in libpcap/WinPcap.
