we all exchanged our point of views. Now we need to come to some conclusions:
- should we give ftdi_usb_open_dev() more options how to handle different
Possible situations are: 
-- ftdi_sio is loaded, should we unload or abort
-- some other application has claimed the device via usbfs, should we force
claiming and continue or should we exit
-- If we unloaded ftdi_sio, should we attach it again on exit
- Should we make all these decisions configurable?

What we can do depends however on what information libusb provides us. At
the moment we can distinguish between ftdi_sio and usbfs...
