version 1.0.23 is in ubuntu 12.10
But the network scanner auto detection in kodakaio (which uses cups) does 
not work.
It seems likely that when the backends were compiled cups.h was not 
detected, so the autodetection was excluded from kodakaio.

Does anyone have ideas about this?
What's the best way to approach ubuntu to discuss it?
Should I be checking for the presence of cups at run time, rather than at 
compile time? - there are many other checks for the presence of libraries in 
configure, is that a general problem when distros build executables: where 
the libraries used depend on the set up of the "machine" that does the 
compiling, and not on the set up of the user's machine.
