This seems to be a way for me to end up with a large pile of broken
scanners that I won't throw out, becuase they _might_ be repairable one
day, and anyway they contain bits that might come in handy (the stepper
motor if nothing else..). But then again I am terminally short of space...
I also don't have the time (or inclination) to keep on tinkering with
software (drivers, etc) every time I need to replace the scanner...
