-SANE is a universal scanner interface. The value of such a universal
-interface is that it allows writing just one driver per image acquisition
-device rather than one driver for each device and application. So, if you
-have three applications and four devices, traditionally you'd have had to
-write 12 different programs. With SANE, this number is reduced to seven:
-the three applications plus the four drivers. Of course, the savings get
-even bigger as more and more drivers and/or applications are added.
