All the backends have a soname of "libsane.so.1".
And you're unlikely to see that in a public project. Most of the time
the faculty is used by custom frontends to link statically with one
backend, it's little used at runtime but it's also a possibility.
Loosing or breaking this behaviour is not an option.
