/etc/papersize was merrily a quick suggestion and after further researching, 
the file is provided by libpaper, pulled in by ghostscript and cups.  So 
/etc/papersize is used for output/printing (cups) operations and not 
input/scanning operations.


"letter port."

"letter land."

Funny thing is, when scanning an area, I always scan for the image size or the 
largest are of the flat bed scanner, rather than by A4/Letter size.

Might want to make sure the xsane frontend is able or is saving it's settings 
to the file.
