Well, if you want a new feature for xscanimage, write a patch :-)

Currently nobody actively maintains xscanimage. I'll fix grave bugs
when someone notices them and add patches, if they look useful. But
otherwise, not much work to improve the features of xscanimage is done
by the SANE developers themselves.

Concerning your idea: If you make it optional (e.g. a preferences menu
option) and test for all the pnm types (e.g. pgm) and better in
upper and lower case a patch would be accepted, I guess.
