	the G2410 is a slightly modified HP2400, so could be supported by the 
genesys backend since it is based on a GL646. Only some resolution are 
working, what is left is to add the missing ones and tune calibration. In my 
opinion, there is no much coding needed (only adding entries in some built-in 
tables) and much testing left.

	Over the past 2 years, this subject came quite often. You can find in the 
archives of the list several mails about the work left, and how I think it 
could be done. Basically it consists in studying how the scanner works under 
windows through USB activity recording, then use these data to adapt code in
