I've just added support for the Mustek Paragon 600 II EP to the Mustek
SCSI backend. The code can be found in CVS and will show up tomorrow
in the automatic CVS snapshot. The changes are based on the patch from
James Perry.

I don't have any information about the Mustek Paragon 600 II ED but if
it's the same as the 600 II EP, it may also work.

Please test. I don't have any parport scanners so it's completely

It currently only works with direct hardware access. libiee1284 is not
supported. If it's detected during configure stage, that scanner will
not work. So for testing, disable libieee1284 (e.g. remove the header
files) and run configure  --enable-parport-directio. If anyone has
experience with libieee1284, could you try to add support to the three
new functions in sanei_pa4s2.c? They all start like this

Please test if compilation breaks on any platform.

For parport access, sanei_pa4s2 is used. Three functions specific for
that scanner have been added.

Changes to the original patch from James Perry include:

- Added dummy functions in case no parport access is available
- Don't break compilation if libieee1284 is available (also dummy)
- Additions to documentation and lists
_ Renaming some functions
- Formatting changes

Thanks to James Perry for his work.
