Ok, i may prefer imcad, since it's easier to pronouce. Then found
another accronym meaning and hide the original, and you're then a true
H4cK3R :P. Actually, i prefer imcad to imcapd.

Beware, you really should design a bit before, because this software is
to be used by other software (like e.g. Gnome Scan). So if you design as
you code, you may end up with an usable software.

I may write the basic of autotools support for you if you want, however
you may want to learn autotools with this project. As you wish.

Ok, let's just assume that imcad has already Vista features (aka
bugs). :P

Go request a SVN repo ! :D
