this is a driver for the Canon Pixma MP7x0 scanner, which has been developed
by sniffing and analysing the Windows driver's communication.  It is far from
perfect, but after all, it supports among other things these basic features:

- all resolutions: 75/150/300/600/... dpi
- user defined image offsets and sizes
- ADF and flatbed
- calibration
- reset / recovery on errors
- basic status handling and
- things I might have forgotten :)

If you have a Pixma scanner other than 7x0, you should consider contacting me.
It is pretty simple to check if your scanner uses a similar protocol and maybe
your model could be integrated smoothly by just adding another USB product ID.
