Xsane's author is not a member of this list, so I'm afraid your patch
will go to waste and your questions will go unanswered. (Yes, the
xsane webpage sends you here first, a big complaint of mine) If you
cannot reach him directly, we (theoretically) could get it setup at
Alioth as a separate project. But, to be worth making the fork, would
need a serious maintainer and a group of developers. Are you willing
to work on it?
