There is a link now. However, I just found out that iscan only works
with Epson scanners. From frontend/pisa_sane_scan.cc:

      if ( 0 == ::strcasecmp ( ppdevice_list [ i ]->vendor, "epson" ) )
And in fact, it ignores all my scanners. If I "fake" an Epson scanner,
the device is opened and the option descriptors are read but nothing
more. So iscan is not really a SANE frontend in my opinion.

So I'll add a comment to the SANE frontends page.

Still waiting for the epsonkw.desc :-)
