Thank you very much for your work at Epson so far!

Yes, thus I will only comment on the epson2 changes which are definately
the smaller piece of changes.

Yes, this would be much appreciated. At least a split between epson2 and
epsonds. From what I see so far, for epson2, this could be further
divided in patches like:

- renew ADF handling
- add AVAHI option
- add the profile maps

Such smaller patches would be much easier to review. I just wonder if
people at Epson will have time and resources for that? The epsonds part
has also more possibilities to split the big patch into smaller ones.

One easy thing to make the patch smaller: I think most of the debug
output was useful during development but may simply be dropped when
releasing the code.

Personal note: I don't have an network based epson scanner and zero
experience with AVAHI etc. If someone here has experience with that, I'd
be very thankful for support in that area.

All the best and happy hacking everyone,
