Highly unlikely.  Image Scan! for Linux only allows for selection of
negative or positive film.  Xsane however let's you choose from among
several manufacturer's negatives.

Either way, neither the SANE epson/epson2 backends nor the epkowa
backend that comes with Image Scan! for Linux have support for this
choice.  That is, neither has a SANE_Option_Descriptor that would
match this kind of functionality.
