[kwlug-disc] Laser Multifunction with feeder under Linux?

Time to replace the inkjet that died, and considering a laser multifunction.

The old one was HP and had superb support in Linux (Ubuntu).
Xane worked well.

One annoying thing is that the old multifunction did not have a sheet
feeder,
so scanning documents that are composed of more than 2 pages is a big
waste of time.

Under Windows, the multifunctions have a resident program that feeds
and scans a stack of pages and outputs a PDF.

Is there a equivalent thing under Linux (scanning a stack of paper by
feeding
them one after the other automatically, and outputing a PDF)?
Which good laser multifunctions make/model supports this?

Thanks
