 Thanks for your hard work. Regarding coolscan3, epson2 and epsonds,
 I have no major additions.

 The first has probably a lot of bugs, but I miss any detailed
 specification from Nikon for most of the scanners.

 epson2 performs quite well, it might have a few bugs too
 but it's surely stable.

 epsonds is a new addition and I was able to test
 it with three quite new scanners. We'll see if there's
 any feedback.

 I welcome C99/C11 and the new libusb.

 There's probably still some bug in the usb code. I have
 intermittent results with some scanners on usb2
 and with others on usb3. switching among the two usb
 standards solves them all.

 Infrared support could be finally enabled as well. my own
 tiffscan frontend already handles it and I had some
 good results using it with coolscan3 and doing
 IR scratch removal with vuescan directly on the produced tiff files.
