Looks good to me, as long as the added code in SANE is propery
#ifdef'd out etc. Let's try not to turn SANE into a Linux-specific
piece of code :)

Also, how do you manage different HAL versions ? Is the HAL plugin API
stable ?

What would be the impact in terms of:
 - added code
 - added library dependencies (and here I'm especially worried about
   bringing in the infamous GLib for the DBus stuff in dll.c, so if we
   could avoid it, that'd be nice)
