[sane-devel] hp3500 vs. hp_rts88xx

The hp3500 backend has been added to the CVS some time ago, supporting
HP 3500 series scanners.

However, the pre-existing hp_rts88xx backend also claims to support
these scanners (and a couple of others, non-3500).

It seems that the hp3500 backend has better support for the hardware
than hp_rts88xx. Can somebody confirm ?

I'm shipping hp_rts88xx as part of libsane-extras in Debian, and
obviously I can't have 2 backends supporting the same hardware, so
there's a choice to be made :)
