I could do the reverse engineering myself, I was looking for something I 
could do a little more quickly.

Already have another one, a Canon LiDE 80. But that's not supported 
either and it's been on the unsupported list since 2007-01-28.

Are then any supported scanners that are currently available? It doesn't 
look like it.

However, LiDE 80 looks like it may be easier to get going than the 
CX5500, so if someone could point me to the appropriate documentation I 
could perhaps bring it into the supported list.
