Description

Adding TWAIN interface on Windows and OS X.

Note: I've compiled darktable with Cygwin and it works. There was needed to add cmake scripts for latest gobject. So support for Windows might be possible.

We have no desire to support Windows. We are already stretched quite thinly as it is. And we have no resources to actually support a significantly growing community. We're already struggling as it is.

While some prototyping for scanner support has been done at some point, this was entirely focused on SANE. And as far as I'm ware that project has stalled. It's a significant amount of work and continued maintenance. And scanning is at best at the outer edge of the scope for the project.

So for the predictable future it's probably best to stick with purposefully built scanner software.
