One feature I wish softwares like Vuescan had is to scan the
image at 6400dpi into the buffer, apply very light sharpening,

saving in TIFF. A 3200 dpi equivalent file I make from 6400dpi
scans in Photoshop is superior to 3200 dpi scan, as you can
easily expect. Why not automate this and save disk space a

I do something similar using the Epson twain driver into photoshop. I have a photoshop action which opens Epson Scan, I do all of the driver settings, click scan, and when it hits photoshop it gets a slight auto sharpen and then downsampling. Though this obviously isn't applicable for vuescan.
