By "document scanner" you mean something that scas sheets of paper and 
has an automatic feeder?  And ideally duplex as well?

I recently picked up an old Fujitsu fi-6130z unit; it's of the sort 
you'll typically see in medical offices where they need to scan in large 
stacks of stuff quickly.  They last approximately forever and can handle 
a lot of physical abuse. 

This model (and other fujitsus) are well supprted by SANE, and it makes 
quick work of whaver I feed into it.  

I also have an old Canon flatbed that works well, but it's not so great 
when you need to scan in more than a page or two at a time.

ANYhoo.  Back to the bitmines.
