actually, as i am trying to implement this- i notice that the
constraint is not really enough info to distinguish between types, as
the RANGE and WORD_LIST are applicable to INT and FIXED types. we
really need to keep the existing SANE_TYPE value on buttons. so, i am
going to suggest a change to use a capability bit instead:

It becomes hard to interpret all the possible combinations of
SANE_CAP, but we may be able to provide some guidance in the standard.
