In tree for 304 days. Is it ready? Remember to file stabilisation requests for your packages. If it's ready, add CC-ARCHES to the 'keywords' field of this bug.

After this update here, my scanner Epson Perfection V200 Photo stopped working.
Many older Epson scanners are not compatible with iscan 3.x.x.x versions.

A while ago there was a discussion to prevent this situation, please see here

Wouldn't masking iscan-3* solve your problem? I do realize iscan-2 and iscan-3 (actually imagescan) are incompatible.
