[sane-devel] Sane continuous paper scanning

My apologies if this is in a FAQ somewhere, but if it is I couldn't find it!
I have a couple of different scanners, all suffer windows limitation on page sizes. 
Being in the petroleum industry I often have a need for scanning documents which may be 8.5 or 14 inches wide but could be up to 50 feet long.
Does SANE allow continuous scanning to a PDF file for products with document feeders (such as the Epson perfection 4180 photo or the Ricoh IS-330)?? Hacking the registry in windoze didn't help - can't say that surprises me! I just don't see why if I'm reading data from USB and writing it to a file why the length of the page should be constrained short of the file size limit for your filesystem!
Many thanks,
Brad Sercombe
