I don't actually know any of the history regarding the patch or the HP5400 
repo.  I just discoverred it when digging around about XPA and the HP5400 as I 
had some negatives I wanted to scan in.

I also don't actually know who Martin is or how to get ahold of him.  All I 
know is that the relevant commit log in the CVS repo said

*Applied patch from Martin to get XPA work. ( This is still beta code and 
should be more tested )
*Beautified a litle manually

I'm actually wondering if it was suppose to be Martijn, as he seems to show up 
at various points on the sourceforge mailing list.  I'll CC him and Thomas 
Sourmarmon to see if they can provide more details.

Thanks!  -Tyson

PS:  Thomas and Martijn, this is regarding the XPA patch in the hp5400 
sourceforge repo.  I dusted it off to use and then re-submitted it
