it might work -- but the usb spec does not specify that kind of thing.
and, there's no guarantee that indeed 2x500 is drawn -- it might as well  
be 1x1000 and 1x0.
those external harddisk usually only pull more then 500 for a very short  
time at startup (if at all). so, it's either up to the fuse or the usb  
host to allow that -- but i am sure, trying to _charge_ with >500 is  
asking too much.
