Not really no, they all use SANE on the backend

There are a number of projects that add extra drivers to SANE, try seeking one of those out. It may have what you need.

I know of at least one commercial product
that supposedly even handles UMAX
scanners that don't have any support
in Linux' kernel or USB projects.

Don't know what it costs, though :)
