In general, the flatbed OfficeJets (1150/1170/1175, R series, PSC 500)
support SCL and the sheetfed ones (T series, 00 series) don't.

You mean as in 16 bits per color (16 bit grayscale, 48 bit color)? Hmm, I
wonder if any of the OfficeJets support this high of a bit depth?

At this point, no. I'm in the midst of rewriting my I/O code to fix various
problems, for example, to allow for multiple devices, hook into the parallel
port code being developed by the Linux OfficeJet driver project
(http://hpoj.bstc.net), and make it more useful for additional things
besides scanning. However, I think I changed a few things that weren't
specific to OfficeJet support. I will look back over my changes, and if
there's anything major I'll send you a patch. (Unfortunately I never got
around to producing a proper patch for my last release.)
BTW, did you get a copy of version 11 of HP's SCL toolkit documentation?
They added information on the ScanJet 6300C in this version. It might be
worth looking over it to see if there are any interesting features in the
newer models like this one that need to be accommodated in the backend code.
