Are there any drivers for the Canon LiDE 600F in Linux?

The SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) project provides the scanner drivers on linux. According to the supported devices list, Canon Lide 600f is not supported.

This blog post might be of interest. From the post:

The CanoScan LiDE 600F is a very good scanner. But it has the disadvantage that Canon is unwilling to release the necessary documentation to enable a Linux driver and SANE backend to be written.

So I decided to write a SANE backend for linux on my own.
