Am I right that these two interfaces are the same and that what I call 
"library", being the file /usr/lib/libsane.so.1 is a copy (why not a 
symlink?) of the dll backend (/usr/lib/sane/libsane-dll.so.1)? Then we 
would have only one interface to test, but we need to test both sides of 
it. We need to test whether a library with that interfaces is there for 
being linked by (LSB-built) frontends and we need to test whether there 
is a dll backend with the appropriate backend interface which will find 
an added (LSB-built) driver.
