Yes, sure. And I'm a big fan of using old hardware for serveral reasons.
That's why I have thel still in the shelf for tsting. But thing is it just
works here. And I know at least the newer HP53xx have a newer
ASIC variant I have not for testing.

I only meant not to rush a revert for very few affected scanners when
the new code adds support for lots of new devices and features.

Btw. we should release the sane-backends way more often. So that
even if there are minor regressions or some single new device IDs
a new release can be done on a monthly basis.

Yes please. Comparision with my SVN tree would help, likewise.
