g_ether is the default for accessing LetuxOS through USB. It allows to ssh
into the device or scp or rsync files to it without opening it or setting
up a wireless connection.
One more idea would be to allow it to be mounted as an USB memory device
so that the /home directory or some files can easily be accessed. Similar
to how the tolino ebook reader is showing itself.
So my idea would be to provide a tested and working standard-install
to modernize g_ether by the configfs and add something like g_storage.
What I don't know is if it is possible to have both in parallel... I.e.
that a device is mounted as a memory device and we can still ssh into
