No, not really... But mostly because I don't have a working net configuratio
right now. I'll should be able to debug this over the weekend.

The scanner's optical resolution is 2400dpi, the 4800 dpi in the
sub-scan direction is done by making smaller steps when the sensors
are moved vertically. The EPSON backend does not support different
resolutions in main- and sub-scan directions, so 2400dpi is the best
the backend can give you. The scanner actually reports the resolutions
it can deliver, and 2400 is the highest value the backend receives.
