at this moment, i think that i would NOT bump the soversion, because i
do not wish to imply that this is sane2. i see two possibilities for
frontend error:

1. SANE_FRAME_* code does not handle unknown frametype
2. the sane_read() loop dies when getting an early SANE_STATUS_EOF

Both of these conditions would currently be handled in robust
frontend, so i think all i propose is to formalize the handling of
these two conditions. That sounds like soversion 1 still.

but, my mind could be changed :) Comments?
