Hi Ullrich,

thanks for your tests - I will add the backend code ASAP and 
mark you in the AUTHORS file as current maintainer.
I'll also put a comment to the .desc file, that ony color scans
are supported.
What about this testtool - will it be needed?
If there is still some ongoing development (which hopefully is ;-)
should get write access to the repository to do the necessary
changes on your own...
