I agree, especially as 1.0.16 is soon to be released.

Ideally the backend should set the size depending on the model; the 2480 
has a piece of plastic you use to hold negatives and slides, and lets you 
scan two slides or three negatives at once. 
The 2580 has an auto film feeder built into the lid, and I believe it scans 1 
negative at a time. For slides their is a plastic guide that lets it scan 1 

The size does need to be restored to the previous value for 2480 users, and if 
it is possible to distinguish between the two scanners, then the size should 
be selected based on the model.
