Thanks. If it means getting access to the new scanner, I will look
at doing the compile. If the diffs are not too large from the current
Ubuntu package, I might be able to unpack it, get a diff patch set,
run them against the old files to update them, and then generate
a new package with a name that will not get updated the next time
they do a bug fix... something which is absolutely certain to happen
at a worst case time.

Lets chat about this a bit. It will be the weekend before I can put
in substantial time, but I can get prepped ahead of time.
