		It is out of the picture to 'back out' other people work. This work has been 
discussed publicly months ago, and development happened in the open. 
	If you want to keep with SANE 1.0, then use the SANE 1.0 branch that has been 
planned when work began on SANE 1.1. People interested can start using it, 
backporting the changes they want -provided the 1.0 standard is respected-. 
There is room enough for SANE 1.0 and next SANE version to coexist.
	I hope the scope of this discussion is to sort out if we call the next 
version SANE 1.1 or 2.0 with the according soname.
