Please check plustek.desc, the "unsupported" entries are broken, they
are all listed as Canon scanners. I guess you can just remove them
because they are in unsupported.desc now.

By the way, I'll remove the UT16B from unsupported.desc because it's
already listed in gt68xx.conf as untested. I hope it's not too much
trouble to support it in gt68xx. But there don't seem too much of these
scanners, at least nobody (but you) has yet contacted me about this

Cool, so the new entries in unsupported.desc are void :-)

Shouldn't the status then be "beta" instead of "stable"? Just a
nitpick :-)

Cool. I think that all backends can now cope with libusb.
