As it's not on our lists, it's quite unlikely than someone is working
on it. Can you provide more details about the scanner, so we can at
least list it as "unsupported"?

E.g., plug it in, boot linux and show us the output of 
"cat /proc/bus/usb/devices", please.

Maybe it's compatible to any of the already supported scanners. But I
doubt that.
