Indicentally, I also have an OpticBook 3600.
After a very brief try I was unsuccessful using Sane properly, so
instead of looking into C/C++ I started working on a generic USB scanner
protocol analyzer and driver-generator in Ruby and GTK. This would
enable even non-programmer users to capture USB traffic from official
drivers, section out certain structures, analyze/decode image data, etc.
Non-progrmmer users with an eye for repetitive patterns could do most of
the protocol analysis and dissection, and then engineers/programmers who
understand a bit of USB and the datasheets of the chips in the scanners
could fill in the missing logic parts.
It would provide very advanced settings for power users to create
scanning profiles, e.g. set your stepper motor speed and acceleration
curves, CCD driving frequency, etc. to balance between speed, image
quality, sound/noise of scanning, etc.
It is still in a very early phase though.
