For general network stuff like opening/closing a connection, putting
such code into sanei/sanei_tcp.c (or similar) may be useful,
especially if platform-dependent code or IPv6 support is necessary.
Otherwise the backend will look like saned.c :-)

If this ESC protocol is used by more scanners, putting it into yet
another file may also make sense.
