I'm still not clear over this...

  1) Will it be possible to charge the neo over the usb connection while 
the neo is in host mode. Will that raise special demand on the hub?

  2) With 4 AAA batteries in the hub You don't want to charge the neo at 
all. If you have wall power You want to fast charge... Can that be 
controlled from the neo, raise any extra demand on the hub?

A flexible powered hub (Wall, external battery pack, car-power(12V)... ) 
that have any 'extra' function that the neo needs/benefits from would be 
the perfect companion... almost a obligatory companion to the neo... 
But... exactly what does it take to make such a beast?

Pointer to the right page in the wiki is welcome... Have not found it 
jet :-)
