IIRC the "geniusvp2 doesn't release ppdev" problem is still there,
although I'd have to check the last reports. This is something I
patched already, but got a report months later telling the problem
reappeared. Haven't got around to check the status on that since then.

If someone can test & report, please do.

Has been running fine in libsane-extras for ages, no problems that I
know of.

It seems that hp_rts88xx supports the HP3500 scanners, and so does the
hp3500 backend. Is it the case ? (the hp3500 scanner is listed in the
comments at the top of the hp_rts88xx main source file)
