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.
