 don't worry, we are just discussing it. And it seems that no api function
 will be added nor modified. 

 we are very concerned toward compatibility and existing frontends. in particular,
 we are trying to do thing in a way that allows xsane to work without

 if it wasn't for those concerns, we would just have bumped sane to 1.1 AND
 added new APIs.
