Anyone got an EPSON Perfection V33 scanner working?

hello, world\n

so I got an EPSON Perfection V33 scanner, needless to say it works
under Win7 with the provided SW on the CD.

Needless to say, it's one of those scanners unsupported by SANE
according to their list,

While it can be probed with
# sane-find-scanner -q
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0142 [EPSON Perfection V33/V330]) at libusb:/dev/usb:/dev/ugen3.3
that's about the end of it.

A lot of googling turned up that some company named Avasys/Seiko/Epson
provides an "Image Scan!" application for Linux, which, strangely enough,
also uses some sane-backend.

Now before I try to make that pig fly by installing rpms in the
Linuxulator, (just to find out that for yet more obscure reason this
does't work so easily), has anyone gotten a V33 to successfully scan
under FreeBSD?
