With gs-alladin 4.03-7:

Thus, the st800 is supported.

I am not familiar with magicfilter, but getting apsfilter to work with the
bjc600 driver was simply a matter of renaming several filter files, since
there is really only one filter and it captures the driver name from the
filter ame.  Possibly the same approach would work with magicfilter.
