I'm willing to help with testing. I have a Epson 4490, and Nikon Coolscan V
slide scanner.  The latter has been a trainwreck with sane for a long time,
but I'm told its finally possible to use it. So if we have a nice GUI front
end for scanning, i'll help out with testing.

         Fedora machine for which no practical open source replacement
         yet exists.
