I've just tested xerox_mfp on the 1815dn, and it works very well,
although I've had two segfaults with XSane. It could be related to
SANE 1.1, though. A color scan from the ADF will segfault midway;
although the backtrace seems to indicate it's an XSane issue, it also
looks like the stack is broken.

Other than that, the backend is conflicting with usblp to claim the
USB device; do you have a way to fix that? Would going over the
emulated parallel port be possible?

I don't really care as I'm printing over the network anyway and use
USB only for scanning, so I can always blacklist usblp, but not
everybody can do that :/

You can add
device `xerox_mfp:libusb:001:012' is a Dell    Dell Laser MFP 1815 multi-function peripheral
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 413c:5124 Dell Computer Corp. Laser MFP 1815

as a supported device for your backend :)

I've kidnapped the 1815dn for the rest of the week-end, so if there's
anything more you'd like, just ask.
