  Saned group is missing permissions to access scanners via udev-acl

Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The udev rules for scanners now allow everyone to scan by using acl
  control,  the problem with this control is that it doesn't allow the
  saned user/group to access the scanner.

  This prevents scanners from being scared over the network, unless
  they're hp scanners. There are some workarounds for instance:


  Which when tested didn't work for Maverick. But I think this should be
  fixed in the saned rules/acl rules somehow to guarantee the saned
  user/group can access scanners.
