No.  Thats for driving the USB based 1250u and 1260u, and possibly 
one or 2 others.  I use it here, albeit in a roundabout way. the 
gui won't build, but the backend does, so after the gui build 
fails, I go ahead and do a make install, and then I get it listed 
as a GT-7200 choice when I run xscanimage or xsane.  It works just 
fine on my 1250u.

The epson code in the sane-backends package is AFAIK, for the 
parallel port or possibly scsi port epsons, but thats a wild guess 
on my part, I've never tried to use it here.
