the same question could be asked of you, since it seems that avision 
backend works with 9 or 10 'manufacturers' :) i volunteered to make sure 
this scanner works under SANE, it was not my choice of hardware. i would 
rather have changeable background color of a nice fujitsu :)

i will try to find time to load your SVN copy tonight and run some tests 
so you can update the status from 'basic'. with current CVS, i have done 
color/gray/lineart at a few resolutions, but have not tried duplex yet. i 
expect 'good' is a better choice.

visioneer/paperport also appear to sell this scanner too?
