Looks like you have run into some trouble on your schedule. :-)  I just 
want to tell you I am cheering you on. I have a LiDE 110 scanner and 
sane-backends compiled from git (gentoo with gentoo-china overlay),  so 
if you have a patch you want to test, I would be happy to help :-).

The easiest for me will of course be to test from the repository, but I 
can easily do a local patch as well.

Cheers, and a virtual beer from me.
