I have a DiamondView DV650U scanner that is supported by SANE, but I always 
assumed that because FBSD doesn't detect it as a uscanner device, just a 
ugen, it wouldn't work. How would I edit uscanner.c & rebuild whatever to see 
if it works?
I can see a list of supported scanners in the file - do I just add en entry 
for mine?

usbdevs -v gives the following:
-- Controller /dev/usb2:
addr 1: full speed, self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), 
VIA(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 addr 2: full speed, self powered, config 1, FlatbedScanner 22(0x20b0), 
Color(0x04a5), rev 1.20
 port 2 powered
