Whatever, this change will have to be backed out from SANE 1.1.

It's a backward-incompatible API change in sane_start()'s
semantic. You've introduced a non-fatal error where previously all
errors were fatal ones.

That means SANE 1.0 frontends won't work with SANE 1.1 out of the box,
and that was kind of a goal of SANE 1.1.
