Not that complicated either. Create e.g.
/etc/hotplug/usb/foo.usermap containing all the devices that you
want to be able to chmod. Use "foo" as module name. Add a script
"foo" to /etc/hotplug/usb like this one:
if test "$ACTION" = "add" ; then
chmod a+rw $DEVICE
# chgrp scanner $DEVICE
# chmod g+rw $DEVICE
