after getting a little bug fixed the "escl" SANE backend is working perfectly 
with the scanner in my HP Deskjet 2540 Ink Advantage multi-function device.

I scanned two complete passports (19 pages each) in 300 dpi grayscale (via 
simple-scan) without any problem. No crashed and all pages are perfectly 
readable. With HPLIP simple-scan offers only 1-bit black and white and full color.

Thank you very much, Thierry!
