Hi,

The plugin was used to be able to have the implementation in a separate 
library/plugin, but have the API in KDE libs. This was from the KDE3 times. 
libksane took it's place quite soon after KDE4 came out. I think it should be 
OK to stop releasing by now. I don't know of any maintained applications that 
still would use the plugin.

Regards,
