adsl? Sorry, do not know that acronym.

There is some work going on in the backgroup for some parallel to SCSI
convertors. The HP parallel port scaners use such a device (sorry, can not
remember the type of interface). Once the parallel to SCSI part is done then it
is the SANE group's job to handle the actual scanner side of things.

I hope that sheds some light on the subject.
