That was similar to my motivation. I decided to use 16 Mhz to tell the drive to spill its copy-protected secrets over USB, in order to create a daily "crossword puzzle” for my laptop. Random G64 image + VICE monitor = no more boring airport waits.

Also, in order to debug a low-level firmware problem, I recovered USB packets from a scope waveform.  That’s using 2 Ghz to process 100 Mhz traces of 10 Mhz waveforms to recover 8-byte packets.  :-)
