WHAT? your os already includes packages for all these things, you just
remove the existing sane-backends, and install v1.0.18, everything else
stays. you may have to do a --nodeps or --force or something when you
remove the original sane-backends, otherwise it will complain.

right- the backends just grab raster bitmaps from the scanner and hand
them to the front-end. the front-end decides what to do with the image.
