Using SANE 1, application can retreive informations only about detected
devices by sane_get_devices(). That would be nice if SANE allow to
retreive such data for any device name.

I suggest :
      * make sane_get_devices() returns a list of device name (e.g. a
        NULL terminated SANE_String_Const array);
      * create const SANE_Device_Descriptor*
        sane_get_device_descriptor(SANE_String_Const name) wich return
        the device "name" descriptor.
      * Drop the name field of SANE_Device_Descriptor.

I wish you find this suggestion useful.

Verso l'Alto !
