Sorry, I should have explained more clearly.  Setting up your user to
have access to the parport will allow you to access the backend 
directly without the need for running saned.  The changes can be 
made independently so you can do both if you want.  I'd recommend 
trying both methods, because depending on your hardware setup, 
xsane through saned may be faster than running xsane directly.
