yes- this is easily doable with SANE. The protocol itself is pretty
simple. The only complicated part is the option handling code, which
can make up 50% of the code on many backends. However, you don't sound
like you will have a lot of options, so it should be a pretty simple

I would probably poke around in the sane-backends source tree, and
pick a short backend which you like the style of, and clone that.
cardscan might be a good choice (but I wrote it, so I cannot see the
warts :)
