I haven't heard from mancio_and@libero.it after his initial posting
If he doesn't answer on this list, try to contact him directly.

At least I don't remember anyone posted a link to code or a website
for that scanner. If that doesn't happen some weeks after the first
announcement, this usually menas that the project is dead. But I like
to be surprised otherwise :-)

Anyway, even if someone worked on this project, you could still try to
write a backend for any of the other unsupported scanners. The list is
so long, you shouldn't have trouble to find one :-)
