Would that this was that simple!  The new Mac OS X "SCSI Architecture
Model" is misnamed; it is a grand unified transport layer, covering
"SCSI, USB (Storage), FireWire SBP2 and ATAPI".  So this may be the
story for a lot of different scanners in 10.3 and later versions of Mac
OS.  Or maybe not, depending on how many manufacturers adopt it.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to start a
sanei_osx_scsi_architecture_family file?
