It does. I found out that there is already a daemon, called scanbuttond: http://scanbuttond.sourceforge.net
It is capable to work with the niash backend and works perfectly.

Button handling in sane requires that the backend driver expose the
buttons as read-only options. I don't know if the niash backend does
