Tom, most of the fujitsu scsi models are resonably well supported, and use 
very similar protocols to one another. fujitsu is also pretty good about 
giving out documents of the scanner internals. so, if you use one of 
theirs, its pretty easy to get them working, at least in a basic form.

many of the more advanced 'features' of high-end scanners of any 
brand actually turn out to be software based, so you might not be able to 
get those from sane easily.
