Yuck!  But who am I to keep this from getting committed ;-)

Wouldn't the Right Thing to do be to change the backend to read its
configuration in sane_init()?  The SANE spec is pretty clear about the
fact that frontends do not have to call sane_get_devices() before they
call sane_open().

Your patch addresses the libusb case but what about the rest?

Hope this helps,
