I don't think it's a good idea to write a backend for the Perfection 1250
from scratch. There are several scanners that are based on the LM 983x
chips, which all could use the same basic backend. Every scanner would
however need some "tweaking" so that all the vendor specific stuff would

As far as I know there is at least one project already underway to 
develop a 983x backend. Check the archives of this list (or wait for
the project maintainer to participate in this discussion).
