    Don't you think the message that's printed now:

    # Note that find-scanner will find any scanner that is connected
    # to a SCSI bus. It will even find scanners that are not supported
    # at all by SANE. It won't find a scanner that is connected to a
    # parallel, USB or other non-SCSI port.

    is clear enough?

    I think this message and the man page are sufficient. When I play with
    the Mustek USB scanners I will try to implement something in
    find-scanner. So I think "sane-find-scanner" is the best choice. I
    don't want to rename it back and change all references again when a
    non-SCSI test is implemented.
