Maybe Olaf could help here ?
As the TPU is the only difference between the two models, that would
be a mean of identifying them, at least if it is possible to determine
which option is installed on the scanner.
While speaking of the 2480, I used it with the epkowa backend
(requires evil non-free binary-only libraries), and did not have to
suffer the waiting time after the firmware loading. Would it be
possible to do something similar in the snapscan backend ?
(something like a SANE daemon to automatically load firmwares into
scanners which need it, triggered by hotplug, would be a really nice
thing to have... shouldn't be too hard to do, but requires a snippet
of code for the firmware loading for each and every scanner...)
