It may change in future. I'm (still) working on a backend for the
Genesys gl646 and gl841 chips but it's still not finished and I don't
have much time at the moment.

See http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/genesys-backend/

I wouldn't buy a scanner just because someone intends to write a
backend. Better buy an already supported device.

Could anyone who already owns such a scanner send me the output of
sane-find-scanner -v -v of SANE 1.0.13 or later?
