Hi Marcus,

Thanks, but don't worry too much about the 8800F, I have one too, and
it is officially supported in SANE since 1.0.21. That was the first
scanner I worked on. Of course it can be improved, there are some
things that are not implemented yet (like difference between neg & pos
scans) so if you notice something please let me know. Resolution-wise,
it all works though.
