[sane-devel] More front end developer Q's

OK, another couple of frontend development questions.

1. How can I determine the native resolution in X and Y of the current
scanner ?

For my EPSON GT-7000, the epson backend returns resolutions up to 2400, and
a default of 50. However EPSONs docs say the native resolution of the
scanner is 600 dpi.

2. What calls should an application make to determine if a scanner is
actually online and ready ? sane_start() followed by sane_cancel() ?
