Using a Commodore 1541 drive with a PC via USB

A fellow has made up a nice adapter to read and write Commodore disks on 
a PC via USB using a 1541 drive.

The thing that jumped out at me is that this is a 5 1/4" drive that 
reads and writes via USB.  Anyone want to comment on whether the 
floppies it accesses would be useful other than on the C64?

Could one do say 360K floppies via this hardware for other than the 
Commodore?  At least part of the work is done to do more than just 
archival like Catweasel, et. al. do, in that it can also write.
