Well, a standard format suggest that all people think the same way. That's 
not true and that's exactly why I dislike Windows. The pluriformity of 
Unix/Linux with all their different configs keeps me in touch with what I'm 
doing. I don't want to be a dumbo, who follows Bill's wishes.

By the way I'm only interested in the stuff that gets my scanner working, so 
I don't want to be bored by parameters used in other backends.
