* Package name    : scanmonitord
  Version         : 1.2.6
  Upstream Author : Simon Matter <simon.matter@invoca.ch>
* URL             : http://www.invoca.ch/pub/packages/scanmonitord/
* License         : GPLv2+
  Programming Lang: C, bash
  Description     : scanner button daemon

Scanmonitord is a daemon which runs device monitors on one or more 
devices. Every button or sensor event is then evaluated by user 
generated action scripts which can itself call whatever system command 
they want. For postprocessing scanned images, scanmonitord has the 
ability to start image processing scripts as daemons which can automate 
additional actions like OCR on scanned images by user defined scripts.

(The above description was copied verbatim from upstream README. The 
actual package description will be likely different.)

I'm curious (and you might want to add it to the description): does this tie 
in with modern desktop systems via DBUS or whatever, or is this a standalone 
thing?

cheers

It's a standalone thing.

scanmonitord supports my pet scanner; scanbuttond does not.
Or more generally, scanmonitord queries scanner via SANE.
