I took the mustek_usb2 back-end, and made it look for  Microtek
ScanMaker 4900 (05da:30d9)

The result was the output as shown below and an 320x240 black and
white image with noise.
There was no motor action, but there also was no aborts like I had with a3p1.

The question is, would it suggest that mustek_usb2 is a promising
starting point, or just about any backend will give me such results? comments?
