At least it will not work out of the box. Enable debugging (set
SANE_DEBUG_MICROTEK2 to 30) and watch out for a line "Model 0xyz not
supported". A check for this model code will have to be added to the source.

Then the backend should at least print the scanner attributes to stderr, if
'option dump 1' is set in the microtek2.conf file. It is necessary to know
these attributes in order to tell you more.
