Nonsense. You can have every driver implement a consistent level of
features, and only have a single implementation of emulated functions.
You just need a library like sanei_magic, which is already used by a
number of existing backends to provide software deskew and autocrop
functions. It would be pretty easy to do something similar for

"well, I stand up next to a mountain- and I chop it down with the edge
of my hand"
