This option has been deprecated for many years now, and no userspace
tools use it anymore, so it should be safe to finally remove it.

zypper info usbview tells me

Information for package usbview:
Repository: openSUSE-12.3 OSS
Name: usbview
Version: 1.1-14.1.2
Arch: i586
Vendor: openSUSE
Installed: Yes
Status: up-to-date
Installed Size: 580.2 KiB
Summary: USB Topology and Device Viewer
USBView is a GTK program that displays the topography of the devices
that are plugged into the USB on a Linux machine. It also displays
information on each of the devices. This can be useful to determine if
a device is working properly.

So why was that in the 12.3 distribution?

It uses the /sys device tree I guess.

As I mentioned, modprobe of usbcore and usb_storage don't seem to take.
No errors, just that a subsequent lsmod shows they aren't there.

usbcore is built-in on 12.3. What is your exact command line for

# cd /
# modprobe usb-storage
# echo $?
# find /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.16-desktop/kernel/ -name '*usb-storage*' \
# modprobe usb-common
# echo $?
# lsmod | grep usb

The -desktop flavour has the built in and not as modules.

I *DO* have a line in the /etc/fstab for usbfs and /proc/bus/usb

Am I supposed to remove that?
It came with the 12.3 install

This entry is not relevant to usb massstorage.
