I found the existing Canon VCC4 driver to be excessively slow and lacking in full functionality.  I wrote a new, Player 2.0, driver using a VCC4 library developed at Lawrence Livermore.   It's much better.
 
The Livermore code, while open source, doesn't appear to be fully GPL.  Can I submit code with the following license? :
