Done, but still no joy ...
I placed two single-sided originals into the ADF and then ran
$ scanimage -V
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.28-871-g8270a82b-dirty; backend version 1.0.28
$ scanimage '--batch=.%03d0.png' --batch-increment 1 --batch-print --batch-start 1 --device pixma:MX880_new-host --source 'Automatic Document Feeder' --format png --mode Color --resolution 300 -l 3 -t 0 -x 210 -y 297

Scanning infinity pages, incrementing by 1, numbering from 1
Scanning page 1
Scanned page 1. (scanner status = 5)
Scanning page 2
scanimage: sane_read: Document feeder out of documents
Scanned page 2. (scanner status = 7)
Batch terminated, 2 pages scanned
The scanner scanned the first sheet ok, placed it in the output tray,
partly pulled in the second sheet, and then stalled, while at the same
time signalling on its display that it is busy and having WiFi traffic.
It ignored any buttons pressed and had to be power-cycled.
I know about the existence of environment variable "SANE_DEBUG_BJNP" but
have no idea what value to set it to to provide reasonable information.
Could someone please guide me?
PS: And plenty of kudos to Bruce who went into all this trouble of sett-
ing up this ebuild and instructing me how to use it :-)
