What i meant was that the function needs to be able to convert from
planar data to chunky data. CIS color scans work mostly like grey scans,
but the led color is changed every line, and scancnt is incremented
every third line. This leads to whole lines of a single component in the
output data of cis scanners:

Is that a property of the ccd-array? The high motor resolution can't
possibly be the reason for that pattern. The most error i would expect
from motor activity is a difference of a single line between the first
and the last pixel in the scanned data.
Is that pattern correct? I would expect something more like this:
But i would guess it heavily depends on the physical layout of the
optical cells on the ccd chip.
In the end this is a multiline operation like line distance correction,
so i will do line distance correction directly after un-staggering.
