There is one hitch I can think of with this. We use a non-free component to 
support the network protocol as well. Most, if not all of these scanners are 
fully supported by epson2, including network scanning, as far as I know. So 
depending on what exactly you are searching for you might be inadvertently 
dropping these scanners as well.

Happy scanning,
