Speaking as the current maintainer of EPSON Kowa's "Image Scan! for
Linux" (a.k.a. iscan), I know that our package silently clobbers the
sane backend and that this is bad. I intend to fix this in a future
release by renaming it.
# I found out when I tried to install a .deb on my own system: dpkg
# just would not let me clobber it without some --force.
