I'm the author of the Avision backend and have (multiple) 16bit per
channel scanners here in the office - and the SANE/Avision backend
already supports 16bit scanning for some time now.
In my position of project leader of T2 (a System Development Environment
- http://www.t2-project.org) I'm accidently also the packager of
cinepaint (http://www.t2-project.org/packages/cinepaint.html) and
inherently interested in 16bps imaging under Linux.
I have never heared about flscan before - so - well - no idea ...
What help do you need on your plugin side? Also note that you will need
a seperate code-path for TWAIN support under OS X and Windows ...
