Thanks for your opinion Bastien, please acknowledge mine too.

I don't see any sense to sandbox all and everything, just because you can.
Better to fix problems and security issues, here related to Sane, than just
sandboxing it and hope, that sandboxing works... and that's what sandboxing
is about: running unchecked and therefore potentially malicious software on
a system.

That doesn't mean, that the idea of a general, unified access over d-bus to
scanners may not be something to be developed.
