The current code of scanner.c already contains a generic way to use
control messages. At least it looks like that, I haven't tested it.
This code is in Linux 2.4.13. I have already added a point to the TODO
list to add a function sanei_usb_write_control (or similar).
Please send a patch for sanei_usb.c (and .h). We can commit it to CVS
after the release of SANE 1.0.6.
