Hello everybody,

I've purchased a Canon LiDE 70 scanner and attached it to my debian
sarge system runing sane-utils 1.0.15-9. So far no success:

	# scanimage -L
	No scanners were identified...

	# lsusb
	Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04a9:2225 Canon, Inc.

The scanner doesn't appear in the list of supported devices. But the
list hasn't been updated since july 2006 and most of the supported
scanners are no longer available.

So I'm wondering whether the Canon LiDE 70 will be supported in a future
release of sane or which scanner I should use instead. The Canon LiDE 25
is supported, but it is not my favorite candidate. A more up-to-date
scanner would be better... ;-)
