What does it mean? Is sane dead?

Subject: Re: saned does not find hpaio scanner
Message-ID: <20160313113602.ga30...@fishbowl.rw.madduck.net>

I traced the problem to

  
https://sourceforge.net/p/hplip/mailman/hplip-devel/thread/46a1257e.5060...@cab.cnea.gov.ar/

tl;dr: hplip changed and now the hpaio backend no longer ignores the
local_only flag. In the past, saned/hpaio was able to access network
printers, even though saned asked it to search local_only. This has
now been "fixed" to avoid a deadlock situation:

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=743593#c18

The question now becomes: how can I tell saned to please also
consider non-local devices, i.e. pass local_only=0 to the
sane_hpaio_get_devices() call?

Or is there a better solution?
