I see that you have been working on the HP 2400c driver. This is
essentially the only scanner that I can get at a reasonable price at the
places that I know and, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be supported
under Linux.

I would like to know if there is any possibility of having it working in
the near future.

If this is not the case, I would welcome any recommendation of scanners
that are fully supported under Linux (with only Free Software), so that
I try to see if I can find it (preferrably from an Free/Open
Source-friendly company that I can support).

Thanks, Rogério Brito.
