I see, but would it not be possible to chown (or chgrp) the /dev/lp0 or
wherever the scanner is to a new group/user and run the server as this new
group/user? (I don't know, I thought this was possible, but I'm not sure)

Ow, I didn't know that, so what you're saying is that the servers in inetd
are only started when they are needed and or not active otherwise?
