Indeed. I realized that it clearly mentions that "Scanning, optical character 
recognition, and assembling multi-page documents are out of scope of this 
project." And, in that context, what is the use case in which ScanTailor would 
be handy? The website states further states that "It performs operations such 
as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others." From which 
I understand that is a necessary step in the flow of actual_document -> 
photograph/scan -> re-alignment. But that generates a digitized text. You do 
have to retrieve information/text from that to be able to use it. Is that 
something to be tackled later?
