I guess you are right. Once all SANE code was in one package, then
there was a split to -backends and -frontends but japi was kept in

Concerning japi I think we should pack it into a .tar.gz file, put in
on the ftp server and link to it somewhere in case somebody is still
interested. Then it can be removed from sane-backends CVS.
