Just a comment about the image size tradeoff.

I have just updated the automatic image selection on previews in Skanlite 
(actually libksane). What I did was to first do a rough auto selection on a 
resized image ~100 * 150 pixels and then refine the selections on the full-
sized preview. It improved the speed dramatically and did not decrease the 
accuracy. (actually it removed a lot of false positives)

Just an idea if you needed more :)
