i think we can do that, but write it in a more general way- backends
must allow the 'name' argument to sane_open to be either the
SANE_Device.name the backend returned in sane_get_devices, or the
device name used by the sanei_ functions, if those names differ.

still not sure how to document that requirement for the front-end
author, because those device names will vary quite a bit between
