There are 3 ways to run bcharge now, with the Pearl:

Will change to 500mA, and switch idProduct mode from 0006 to 0004 (dual).
bcharge -o
Will change to 500mA and switch from 0006 to 0001 (classic)
bcharge -d
Will change to 500mA and switch from 0001 to 0004 (dual).
This is the behaviour I had hoped for earlier, but I tried to do it
automatically, which seems impossible, from just the USB data. I'm sure
if I talked to the device to get manufacturer, product strings, etc
I could do more checks, but that would make bcharge more complicated
than necessary. I think the above command line switches are a good balance.
I personally haven't had a chance to test the new code yet.
