[sane-devel] saned does not find hpaio scanner

I traced the problem to


tl;dr: hplip changed and now the hpaio backend no longer ignores the
local_only flag. In the past, saned/hpaio was able to access network
printers, even though saned asked it to search local_only. This has
now been "fixed" to avoid a deadlock situation:


The question now becomes: how can I tell saned to please also
consider non-local devices, i.e. pass local_only=0 to the
sane_hpaio_get_devices() call?

Or is there a better solution?
