Following the previous mails, I've:
- removed Martin from the list,
- added Michel for his fentonups knowledges. Michel, your help would be
welcomed ;-)

uhm, megatec you say! You should also have a look at fentonups.
I remember that it's stated to be a Megatec protocol driver (look at
driver.list too)...

maybe megatec would be a good name!
considering my above remark, things might be huger than I (we) have thought
at first...

I like the starting of your patch (more generic...), although the unknown
values in mfr/model aren't the best. Some switch (ie
-mode={mustek,blazer,fenton} should be fine to handle this.

Anyway, we'll postpon things until the situation gets more clear.
Can you please have a look at all these Carlos and Michel?
