Well, it actually is in the repositories, but uses the name gnomescan
instead. That is a metapackage for the libraries and the Flegita GUI.
It seems to do the job well with my scanner and look better than
XSane. I'd seriously consider it for the next release. If we want to
focus on appearance with that release we should also pick applications
that look good.
