I am interessted.

It should be both:

- manual
- automatic

I don`t think smolt is enough. There are several other places:
gutenprints test page, sound-card-detection,  xsane, ...

Has smolt an API, so other apps like digikam, sane, ... could send
information about non-working scanner, digital-cameras, 1394 camcorders ?

I have a tft-display that does screw up x.orgs autodetection because of
faulty ddc-readouts. Such devices should be possible to add manually.

And we could add the inform-vendor-button for non-supported devices we
talked about:
