[sane-devel] New Epson Scanners

When I use the "epson" backend for the Perfection 660, after some 
minutes of waiting I get

    [ epson ] error in receive - status = 5
    [ epson ] ident failed

on the console from which I have started "xsane".

I have already added the new models to doc/description/epson.desc and 
recompiled sane-backends. Are other modifications needed?
