simple-scan by default in lucid

Hi folks,

I've just seeded simple-scan to replace xsane. From what I could see, it
seems to be much more user-friendly, and to work fine. Ubuntu already
installs it by default (it's in main, whereas xsane has been demoted to
universe in lucid, which means a very limited support…).

Of course, this can be reverted; I've only set it by default to gather
more feedback from more people (our fearless charlie-tca doesn't have a
scanner to test it :P), so feel free to react, and of course please
report bugs against 'simple-scan' when you experience some issues. ;)
If it creates too much trouble I'll put back xsane.
