well, I don't mind much about the standard version numbering ;) But you
wrote in an earlier mail that some frontends may already support the 1
bit RGB mode. Since we should at least change the output of the test
backend to conform with the addition to/clarification of the standard,
the frontends should have some way to detect this change. So we should
perhaps add something like
"Before Sane release 1.0.9 RGB 1 bit data was stored in the reverse
