I looked at the code. It's a basic scsi scanner driver. It should take a 
couple hours work to make a backend, starting from the existing 
matsushita driver.

The only problem IMHO is the license, and the testing.

And when I see how simple these scanners are, I don't understand 
Panasonic's need for an NDA.
