The number of noisy&speckled pixels won't get smaller by averaging, but the 
amplitude will average out a bit, and I suspect that Huffman encoding will

I'll get with that; OTOH I see people recommend that approach.
The other option would be taking the median. Whatever works best *shrug*.

Longer exposure isn't something I can control with a scanner...

and nothing about what they actually do; did I just miss the pages with 
details about what they do and what each option does, or are image
