    It's the job of the backend to provide such an option. E.g. for Mustek
    SCSI scanners it's option "source" (Flatbed, Automatic Document Feeder
    or Transparency Adapter). At least this backend provides these options
    only if the devices were detected.

    I don't know how this works for Epson scanners.
