    Hi Ben, hi Nick.

    SANE defines an API between a frontend and a backend.
    The SANE network part shall be invisible for the frontends and the
    backends. This means that sane-net has to behave like a normal backend
    and saned as a normal frontend. Everything that is related to the
    network communication has to be done in sane-net and saned and has
    to be invisible for the frontend and the scanner-driver-backend.

    It is not possible to start a new network connection because
    you start a new backend that does not now about the option settings
    previously done.

    What must be implemented is a communication between saned and sane-net
    that makes sure that saned does not die as long as sane-net (and the
    frontend) is still running.
