Is LSB 4.0 (due by the end of this year) not based on the SLES version 
which comes after 10? If LSB 4.0 is also SLES10-based we cannot change 
much in it and so it would be a 3.3 or even only 3.2.1.

Having SANE only in SLED should not prevent it from being in the LSB, as 
the LSB covers also desktops and not only servers.
