 I know, still have to write them. It is supposed to
 support the same scanners as epson backend.

 actually, only minor benefits. But I want to be
 sure I have not breaked compatibility with other

 In somewhat near future, epson2 will be able to scan
 using extended commands (they should be a little bit faster),
 talk to network capable scanners and to the FilmScan 200.

 I also would like to collect information on the scanners
 in order to maintain compatibility in the future.
