Hi List,

as some of you may have noticed, the genesys backend now has the ability
to set a motor power level, leading to much quieter scans in high dpi
modes(if it is implemented for the scanner).
This feature is currently available in the experimental module, as the
settings for this new mode need some more testing on scanners other than
So, if you own a scanner of the Canon LiDE 35/40/50/60 series, please
try the code from the experimental module. The low power mode is used
when scanning at resolutions >=600dpi, and during calibration. Errors
are most likely when the scanner does a fast feed to the scanning area.

Also, it would be good if someone owning a gl646 based scanner tests the
code, as the gl646 part tends to break whenever i change something :(
