Distributions don't get to decide the SANE standard ;-)
I git grep SANE_CAP_ALWAYS_SETTABLE on latest master and the only place
it is still mentioned are the ChangeLogs. If any frontends still use
it, it is those frontends that need fixing.
The sane-frontends should compile fine without as its use is wrapped in
suitable #ifdef logic.
Hope this helps,
