Ya know... I think that *every* backend has a line like this in it:

*version_code = SANE_VERSION_CODE (V_MAJOR, V_MINOR, 0);

which assigns the version code of the backend to that of the SANE
distribution release....

Is that correct? It seems like the intent is that it should be the version
number of particular backend --- with the guideline that backend major
numbers must match the major number of the SANE API which they correspond to.
