[sane-devel] Front end that respects SANE_INFO_RELOAD_PARAMS and SANE_INFO_INEXACT?

xsane appears to ignore the flags most of the time (the flag pointer is
null), so it won't reload options when needed.  quiteinsane segfaults.
kooka doesn't present most options.  

The Nikon Coolscan 9000 changes fundamental parameters, including
scannable area and number of frames, based on the inserted film holder.
If the holder is not loaded when xsane is started, nothing works, let
alone using different holders.

What free front end will expose all the driver options and respect the
sane_control_option return flags?  

I also found that xsane will set the depth to 8 bits even if 8 bits is
not listed as a supported resolution in the option.
