Perhaps you are right. In order to include the source in
sane-backends, it certainly must meet points 1,2,3 and 5. If Plustek
Inc is only able to comply with #1, some other developer will have to
perform the other steps, and hopefully point #4 as well. But we have
to be realistic about finding someone like that.
