i tested the oj 8600 about a year ago.  when the adf option was
selected, you had to use the -batch=n option and give it the number of
pages.  at that time, the hplip backend required batch mode with the

if you wanted to scan three sheets in different steps, you could not.
the printer was going to pull all the sheets in the tray through the
scanner even if you only wanted one sheet at a time.  again, this was
a year ago, the hplip backend may be different today.

i didn't want to rewrite a whole pile of scripts for these changes, so
found a supply of older aio's.
