I used the fix as per 9.04/10.04 from the Brother FAQ's: not successfully at first. Then I re-read line 2 of their instruction, and put the extra line in the right place, (it's also clearly indicated where to put it in the start of the file, if only I read the instructions ocasionally -
"# To add a USB device, add a rule to the list below between the
 # LABEL="libsane_usb_rules_begin" and LABEL="libsane_usb_rules_end" lines."

Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04
    1. Open "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" file.
    2.Add the following two lines to the end of the device list. (Before the line "# The following rule will disable ..."):

    The lines to be added---------------------------

    # Brother scanners
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

And then restarted the system, and yay, the scanner works in Natty.
