As far as I understand it, those are structured differently.  Don't  
they spawn a thread when you give it an open command, and then object  
waits for the thread to return, after which, that thread dies?

I am thinking of having one "worker" thread which listens for events  
then calls the output function for each instance of [hid].  So there  
would only be one worker thread per device, no matter how many  
instances of [hid] were accessing that device.
