Current scheme for scanners is as follows:
 - user access: device is group scanner
 - saned access: device is group saned
 - user AND saned: either put the saned user in the scanner group, or
   make the device saned:scanner.

USB and SCSI scanners are handled the same way.

So to reiterate what I wrote already, if you want to get rid of that
in the rules shipped with udev, that's fine by me; libsane will take
care of it, it'll be in the next upstream release anyway.
