I included the backend in the libsane-extras Debian package, and I've
got a few (one or two) success reports with it. Since then, SANE 1.0.9
made its way into the Debian archive and nobody complained,
so... either it "works"[*] or nobody uses it :)

Frank Zago said on October 30th that he was working on the backend,
but nothing else has happened since then. Any news ?


[*] IIRC the backend only supports a few features
