This is an Epson Perfection 1260. Don't ask what the 'Perfection' stands
for. Anyway, this is in fact a Plustek, so I have to add the following
+[usb] 0x04B8 0x011D
I need vendor and product id to get this working. Without getting
this info, eg scanimage -L will complain that it couldn't find a scanner, etc.
only with /dev/usb* set to root:usb, I will get
device `plustek:/dev/uscanner0' is a Epson Perfection 1260/Photo USB flatbed scanner
