        unfortunately, we don't have the same idea of what SANE 1.1 goals 
should be. It has only  been stated that SANE 1.1 will have to be compatible 
for backends not frontends. This is because we don't have the ability to test 
all the scanners that would have been impacted by bigger changes than those 
that went into SANE 1.1.
