I don't know what the current state of desktop Linux is, but USB is a bit tricky because you need to automatically set up the serial port it represents and then get brltty started using it in order for plug-and-pray to work. It should theoretically be possible using Hal, but I've never seen it done. Keyboards should be fine.
If you want to volunteer, consider joining the brltty list. Some willingness to be brave and adventurous is required, as well as a willingness to learn and "Get technical". Linux is for technically-minded people by technically-minded people and it shows.
