Package: hplip, sane-utils
Severity: important

A while ago, hplip was "fixed" with a hack to work around
a deadlock. I've written about this on the saned mailing list:

Long story short: the "workaround" was to take away saned's access
to remote scanners (local_only=1), meaning that all setups where
saned was used to export networked scanners (in a "DMZ" in our case)
to the local network are now broken.

I understand that generally saned needs not export remote scanners,
as clients could just access them directly, but there is a benefit
in centralising all access via saned, which allows better access
control and logging than many of the network scanners available on
the market.

If possible, it'd be great if the local_only setting could be made
configurable, at least for hpaio, so that for a setting like ours,
where the is no deadlock, I can get the desired behaviour.
