[sane-devel] sane-backends-1.0.21: no SANE_CAP_ALWAYS_SETTABLE in sane.h

in sane-backends-1.0.20 SANE_CAP_ALWAYS_SETTABLE was erroneously
removed from include/sane/sane.h and as a consequence some
frontends (like xsane) failed to build, see

Now I found out that in sane-backends-1.0.21 there is also
no SANE_CAP_ALWAYS_SETTABLE in include/sane/sane.h.

Is this meanwhile really no longer needed by any frontend?

Wouldn't it have been better to re-add it to be on the safe side
so that e.g. even older frontend versions won't fail to build?
