why dont you go ahead and combine those drivers into a new teco
backend, if it is easy enough. we can ship two backends that support
the same scanners, and we can even disable teco1-3 in the dll.conf
file. having currently active maintainers is worth the trouble.
if you are looking for something else to do, there are plenty of other
unsupported machines around :)
