Well extending SANE1 will certainly start the new discussion
about finishing SANE2 standard before starting - ACK ;)
But as we did not move forward and scanner support for Linux
is more or less stopped in its development, I vote for
extending SANE1. 

As long as it won't hurt the API and the flow-control, introducing
more frametypes should be no problem...
