I'm looking for a straight forward scanning solution for use under

from control-line, scanimage
included with sane

scanimage --help
Usage: scanimage [OPTION]...

Start image acquisition on a scanner device and write PNM image data to
standard output.

-d, --device-name=DEVICE use a given scanner device (e.g. hp:/dev/scanner)
--format=pnm|tiff file format of output file
-i, --icc-profile=PROFILE include this ICC profile into TIFF file
-L, --list-devices show available scanner devices
-f, --formatted-device-list=FORMAT similar to -L, but the FORMAT of the output
can be specified: %d (device name), %v (vendor),
%m (model), %t (type), and %i (index number)
-b, --batch[=FORMAT] working in batch mode, FORMAT is `out%d.pnm' or
`out%d.tif' by default depending on --format
--batch-start=# page number to start naming files with
--batch-count=# how many pages to scan in batch mode
--batch-increment=# increase number in filename by an amount of #
--batch-double increment page number by two for 2sided originals
being scanned in a single sided scanner
--batch-prompt ask for pressing a key before scanning a page
--accept-md5-only only accept authorization requests using md5
-p, --progress print progress messages
-n, --dont-scan only set options, don't actually scan
-T, --test test backend thoroughly
-h, --help display this help message and exit
-v, --verbose give even more status messages
-B, --buffer-size change default input buffersize
-V, --version print version information
