I've played with the IS410 and the ibm backend some years ago. I was able
to move the paper through the ADF or even scan with some minor patches of the
backend (don't know if I've commited them to Henning). The ricoh backend
didn't work at all with that scanner. If you want to use the scanner seriously
there is some work to do. I wasn't able to get some documentation of the
scanner from ricoh.
