sounds good. i can use your patch as a starting point for a
model-specific override (i try not to scatter model_name comparisons
in the code).

no- they have not been replaced, they are disabled until you set
df-action to something other than default.

you still have to set dfdiff.

yes- i dont have a good way to detect the overscan capability, other
than the existence of the page code that is used to enable it, which
also enables other things. do you get an error when you set overscan?
if not, then the problem might be that your os_x/y_basic need to be
overridden, like the 4120c?

what is the maximum page-width value?

scanimage does not display any sensors, because it does not know what
to do with them.
