 I started by changing a bit coolscan2 and then found that I needed
 more deeper changes. In order to avoid compatibility problems
 I preferred to fork it into coolscan3.

 I've then added infrared support for my LS-2000 which is working
 very fine. I now have an almost-open-source workflow
 for scanning my slides: I save to 16bits RGB+infrared with tiffscan
 and then use vuescan for infrared dust removal.

 there isn't. Every receiver has his own preference :) As the linux kernel rtc
 maintainer I have the habit to "reply to all" until someone bites me :)
