no on both questions i think. there is a scsi command to set a timer on
the lamp, but the backend does not send this command. should not be too
hard to add.
i have not investigated auto paper sizing, but it seems that it would only
work for width, and would involve perhaps taking a single scanline at full
width, and then determine most likely window params from that. this would
be a bit more work.

If i use A4 then i know that the whole paper will always be scanned.. but if i scan a lot of A5 then i want to scan only A5 because it it twice as fast as A4.... now when i mix A4 and the smaller A5, I have to change settings all the time... If I use adfscan then I have to set it to A4 (the largest format) but then i loose a lot of speed... A 'papersize=auto' feature would be nice... is there some way to do this with the current backend?
