Restoring the xsane menu item

Hello all,

As some of you know, we removed the Xsane menu item as part of
MenusRevisited[0]. I was ambivalent at the time and have thus been
doing a great deal of thinking about it. Thus I think we should
restore it.

Part of the goal of MenusRevisited was to simplify menus. This has
been achieved, by and large. Currently the graphics menu has 2 items
in it. Thus readding another back in is not a huge deal.

Yes, a user can access scanning through the GIMP and by just pressing
the scan button, but having watched my father scan, I think I can say
that it is likely that most users launch the program and then scan
from there.

With those two pieces of information in mind, are there strong reasons
not to restore the menu item? (This is not a rhetorical question, I am
looking to see if I missed something)
