Yeah, it is a scanner that hasn't been supported in sane before this
(Visioneer OneTouch 7400, the Visioneer OneTouch 7300 is supported), so
there will be lots of things to do.  I'll be reporting to sane, so maybe
it will get fixed via upstream.

In my searching so far, this seems to be obsolete because it used the
scanner module in the kernel.  The modern solution is to use libusb for
usb scanners.
