This is physically no-sense. Already real 16 bits/sample are only
possible with very low temperature (e.g. fluid nitrogen cooling)
and I have never seen such a scanner.

But this is no reason to make SANE-1 unusable by creating incompatible
sane1 versions.

When you think sane2 takes too long then make the sane2 proposal to a
sane3 proposal and create a reduced sane2 proposal. But do not make
sane1 corrupt.
