[sane-devel] Documentation: ColorPage-SF600 is supported

No problem.  The scanner seems to work exactly as the OpticSlim M12 is
documented to work.  I was able to scan in grayscale, and color at
different DPIs, but lineart was coming out all white.  However, like
the M12, there didn't seem to be any calibration, so the images that
did scan correctly were very light and washed out...  in fact, that
seemed to be the reason the lineart images were always all white.  I
think that everything was scanning in so light that nothing was being
detected as black in the lineart scans.

The scanner comes with a calibration sheet, but I wasn't sure if there
was any way to use it with sane.  I assume not...
