My first thought was to wonder whether libsane was purely for network 
comms, but it looks as though it's an interface to libusb-win32. However 
the thread below suggests that it might still be work-in-progress, and 
interfacing via Howard's suggestion (above) or via TWAIN (if the 
hardware is supported) might be preferable.
