    Hi Kevin,

    SANE is still under development. We have a lot of alpha and beta drivers in
    it and it is not in our interest that the sane libraries are installed stripped.
    The sane policy is to install the libraries non-stripped and I suggest that
    this is done for Debian's sane version too.
