Has anyone successfully used Phidgets devices with Gumstix? It looks like the Verdex models should support the USB host required by the Phidgets USB peripherals and their Python API, but I'd like to hear from someone who has done it before I buy a Verdex board. If this works, I'd also be curious if a powered USB hub would be able to support multiple Phidget devices.

I'm looking to do some physical computing projects with Python, and this seems like a good fit. If anyone has other suggestions on using Gumstix and Python to drive motors and sensors, I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance.
