Sorry for the confusion, I think the 1-wire stuff are the chips and 
components used to implement the iButton systems?  The 1-wire bus host 
chips come in the same flavors as the ready-to-use iButton interfaces 
(serial, usb, parallel port, etc.):

All of those flavors, including the usb, could most easily be implmented 
in user-space, I'm thinking (makes debugging easier!).
