Two data points to add to your list:

With Debian, I have an emprex USB keyboard working, model number 5139U.  With 
2007.2 nightly build from mid august, it only worked on the console, and the 
LEDs didn't light.  With Debian, it works everywhere, and the LEDs light up.

With 2007.2, I also got a USB 3.5" floppy drive to work, going through a 
powered USB hub.  (I didn't try directly.)  It's the future! ;)
