Dear SANE developers,

I've got six years old Microtek Film Scan 35 which nobody cares of at my 
work. Unfortunately I seen the mark "unsupported" at SANE web site.
Small remark made me confused 
[ http://www3.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html ] :

FilmScan 35



Probably unsupported. See link for details



What does "Probably unsupported" mean? Both links gave no hope of 

If it means, that the scanner is somehow supported, could you explain how 
to make it working at my Linux box?

If it means, that the scanner is not supported, I'd like to know how much 
man-hours it would take to create some basic support. I have some free 
time, good knowledge of C and Linux. Could anyone to outline the procedure 
of creating (or extending) the SANE back-end?

sane-find-scanner says there is a device with vendor/model as expected. 
xscanimage pretends there's no available scanner however.

With the warmest regards,
