nb: I have two scanners up here as well that can be utilized, they're
actually dual firewire/usb scanners that krh got when working on the
firewire stack (and I inherited when I was working on it). Of course,
last I knew, they both worked just fine using the gimp sane plugin,
so they may not be all that interesting.

(One is an Epson somethingorother, one is a Microtek, both are
reasonably nice scanners)
