The label of the button to configure a piece of hardware
must be since ever by a god-mode final decission "Edit".
I can neither remove the button nor can I rename it.
The whole "Edit" button and its label does not make sense
for scanner setup but there is nothing I can do against such
a fundamental final decission about the design of a YaST
hardware setup dialog.
The only possible solution for me is workaround with popups
which try to explain the nonsense to the user.
"Autodetected" and "detected" are two words for the same thing.

And again a nonsense value - now in Bugzilla - because
the meaning here is "CANTFIX".
I do not like to discuss YaST design issues any further.
