Just an artist comment: following after Gimp is good, since most of
the time we're scanning into Gimp.

>> Hi all, hi Ralph!
>> There is an other suggested pack of changes for xSane and its Preview window:
>> Add 'Create selection for full-frame of 135 format film' button.
>> Remove 'Undo Zoom' button, it is useless.
>> Redesign 'Drag modes':
>> Left button outside the selection: create a new selection.
>> Left button on a border of selection: modify this selection.
>> Left button inside the selection: move the selection.
>> Middle button anywhere in the screen: move the screen (for Zoomed mode only).
>> It is designated for simplifying the process of scanning camera rolls and slides.The user can Zoom In as they like to, create a selection box with an exact size of frame (135 format, full size or half size), then move this box across the frames, scan frames, move the screen, etc.
>> Patterns for mouse buttons are similar to Gimp. There is no general patterns amid image editors and CAD systems, so Gimp is an option.
>> The code of xsane-preview.h/cpp was rewritten and simplified first to make new patterns and modes with their cursors easy to add.
