 the driver actually supports usb, scsi, pio and network. I don't want'
 to integrate because we know the current backend works pretty well, while
 my reshuffling has probably introduced compatibility problems on scanners
 I'm not able to test it with.

 The tcp part, as suggested, has been called sanei_tcp .

 I would call the backend epson2. ;)
