Good! Now faxing works really nice with xsane.

That's even better. It took me some time to find out which options to
use for faxspool.

Seems to work now.
Some random points not related to the new release:
* Help menu, About translation:
Maybe it's also possible to view the last translator and the date of
translation of the backend options?
* Help menu, Backend doc + available backends (same page?)
- The image (sane-logo2.jpg) isn't there
- The list is quite out of date
- Not a single link seems to be working
* Help menu, Problems
- No image
* Help menu, Scan tips
- No image
- http://www.infomedia.net/scan/ doesn't exist
Running xsane with a SANE device name (e.g. xsane test:0) seems to run
sane_get_devices. Can this be avoided? It can take quite some time
when several scanners are attached.
