Consider adding xsane to the graphics menu

Should it not be there ? We probably want to use a better name than Ubuntu
though, which calls the menu item just "Xsane"
This was discussed a bit today and the general consensus is that we adding a
menu item isn't really the right approach. We should do the work to get this
working better dynamically (in the same way that thumb drives work, etc)
Ray, would you elaborate a bit? Xsane provides some functionality I don't see in
any other program (e.g. scan to fax) so it's a bit dissatisfactory to not have
it in any of the menus.
I don't really remember the discussion, but I assume I meant that Xsane should
just start if you plug in a scanner or turn your scanner on.
So to start xsane again (after quitting), I'd have to plug out/re-plug or switch
off/on the scanner? That's kind of ... gross ;-).
Besides, I don't think my SCSI scanners would be recognized when switched on
anyway (I have to "echo scsi-add-single-device ..." to use them after powering on).
Okay, let's add it to the menus, but give it a more recongizable name than Xsane.
Not sure...maybe "Scanner Tool" ? Is this in the default install? If not, we
should make it, e.g., "Xsane Scanner Tool".
for now, xsane seems to have found its way in the menus.
