So far, nobody has registered interest in writing a driver for video
cameras other than the Connectix one. Of course, as usual with free
software, this may change any day---all it takes is a motivated
developer with the right hardware & docs...

Dunno. I certainly would be delighted if SANE came with all Linux
distributions. I think there is a fair chance of this happening once
the GIMP and GTK have stabilized.
