I wrote scanbd in order to use the sane-backend, because at the time of
starting with scanbd, scanbuttond seems quite dead. I incorporated
scanbuttond-backends "as-is" to support scanners that didn't had
querying support in sane-backends.

So - in short - up to my view it would be best to make the snae-backend
for your scanner working ...
