SANE is for scanning images. As barcode scanners return a stream of
ASCII characters in general then it is fair to say that SANE does not
provide any appropriate mechanisms for presenting this to applications.
That is not to say that an interface such as SANE for interfacing barcode
scanners is not needed, just SANE is not it.
