Nobody has ever reported this "general bug" to me. I have implemented
any requests for specific options I have received.

Having written Perl bindings for SANE, I will be able to do a more
general interface, but please file the bug on Sourceforge or against
the Debian package in the mean time.

Perhaps you have some ideas on what to do for those scanners which
offer so many options that the option dialog window is so tall that it
must be scrolled - maybe some way of showing/hiding certain options
that you don't use.
