Ah, yes, xcam supports that, but I didn't implement it in xscanimage
yet. I wasn't sure whether it would just confuse the user. If you
look at how parameters are saved/restored in xscanimage and look at
xcam, it should be pretty clear how this could be added, though.
If scanimage could support that, it would be nice, too, I agree.
