Yeah it still says that. I don't recall who wrote that, but the doc is 
wrong and was always wrong, because PWC came after QC-USB and we used both 
drivers "at the same time" for a while... I last tried QC-USB as recently 
as 2008, with an old Lego Mindstorm camera. AFAIK, QC-USB was always 
supported since the day it started working, and that was a while before we 
even knew what PWC was.

I've already said all that I know.

Please stay on the forums, it may help you. I say that because you often 
reply in private, and it's not really appropriate, for most cases where 
people start posting in public.
