It is nice to have them to fall back on - there was one point a couple
of Ubuntu releases ago where Xsane, etc. had not quite kept up with
libsane, and so the only scanning programs that worked with one
particular set of scanners were scanimage, and therefore gscan2pdf.

But if it were possible to do everything with scanimage, then I
wouldn't have written libsane-perl...
