there was some discussion about having one or more sane options that could 
provide scanner status. they would have to be in a specific group, or have 
specific indexes into the options array, or have specific names, so 
finding them could be sort of ugly.

i can think of a few things that the fujitsu scanners tell us:

button1 pressed
button2 pressed
character on 'function' readout
number on 'copy' wheel
paper in hopper
cover open
lamp warm

is there a general purpose way to expose this?
