Yes, in order for the backend to detect it you would need to register
the Vendor ID and Product ID with that backend, if I understand
correctly. That means editing the recommended backend code (preferably
in a CVS version of SANE) and recompiling it (goes into /usr/local so
no interference with system SANE). Then scanimage -L should find the
scanner with whatever backend the Vid/Pid was registered with, and try
to work with it.
