The question is: Can TWAIN do this (as the scanner is running on
win98)? i don't think so.

SANE has been ported to win32, but I don't know how complete this port
is and if saned works on win32. If it does, there is still the
questions what happens if the scanner is accessd through saned and
TWAIN at the same time.
