Is XSANE supported under Sierra?

MacBook running Sierra + all patches (it will *not* go further), XSANE 

The scanner is an Epson Perfection1240 (pretty old now) and XSANE stopped 
seeing it around the time I upgraded to Sierra (or could have been a minor 
update, as I rarely use it).  USB info sees it, so it's not the OS as 
such; I'm guessing that the API has changed?
