The net backend has no business using SNMP, not until saned starts using
it at least.

I guess you missed the fact the net backend only works with saned
servers.  It does not in any way support scanners that are directly
attached to the network (as in have their own IP address and you can
telnet to).  It only works with the scanners that are locally attached
(via USB, SCSI, etc.) to a machine that run saned.

Hope this helps,
