I am aware of that, and I wasn't asking the sane developers for any
effort, unless you count brain-picking as effort.

Not really - if there is no alternative to vuescan, the end result is
the same. Sorry, xsane doesn't come close yet. People buy vuescan for
windows because it's both cheap and better than what the scanner
suppliers give them. I don't see a lot of people switching to inferior
apps on a superior OS, esp when the app doesn't talk to the scanner.
Their main aim is to get the scanning work done.

Yes I hate closed source software too, but reality is that it's not
possible to do without it quiet yet.
