is 'Default' better than 'Normal'?

can you change between 'Flatbed' and 'Film' for those scanners? can you 
even identify them?

i like 'ADF Front' instead of just 'ADF', i think it is more consistent.
but i do like your ordering better, so i think i shall do this:

"Flatbed|ADF Front|ADF Back|ADF Duplex"

and if a fujitsu ever gets film, i would change 'Flatbed'.
