Hello Wilhelm,

Great work on scanbd! It was a little difficult to set up, since I was a 
complete sane-noob, but after a few hours my embedded linuxdevice 
executes scripts as a reaction on the scanner buttons, while sane can 
access it through net backend. Neat!

One small suggestion for improvement: The debian start script in 1.2.1 
hardcodes the SANE_CONFIG_DIR environment variable, resulting in scanbd 
not working if executed from the init script if the scanbd configuration 
is installed anywhere else than in the hardcoded location.

I'd suggest reading environment variables from /etc/default/scanbd, and 
(only) setting the default if none is set there.

Thanks for the support!
