[sane-devel] Attempt to reverse engineer Optrox proprietary-card scanner

I got an Optrox scanner with proprietary ISA card. I managed to get the 
Windows 3.1 driver to work in Wine so I'm attempting to reverse engineer it.

I can wake up the scanner, turn the lamp on/off, move the scanning head 
forward and back and read/write the 32KB SRAM on the controller card.
The code is at http://rainbow-software.org/linux/optrox/

I started in 2007 but didn't have time to do anything with this recently. 
Hopefully I'll be able to continue now.
