How does this new piece of SANE code integrate into the SANE

I'm sorry, I don't see where this code lies.

I hope you do know that every SANE backend is 100% interchangeable
with every other SANE backend, and that what is called "libsane.so" is
nothing else than the DLL backend.

As such, there's no central SANE library where to put this code. It
means it has to be duplicated into each backend, which sucks about as
much it can.

I'd like more details on what you're trying to do, how you plan to do
it, etc. Your mails look like they've been written in a hurry, and
quality suffers accordingly. I also have the feeling that you're
trying to force that down our throats, which is a little bit
