Looks nice.

Asking Minolta if they will provide technical documentation to write/expand 
the backend, ->before<- you buy your scanner, may be a good point.

If this scanner is also manufactured by avision it is likelly that it will be 
supported by the backend in development, but other than the looks are there 
any reason to believe that it is?
