Not rare at all in my experience.  I setup saned/sane-net as the default
when installing a scanner ... even for local access (127.0.0.1).  This
is almost a must in a company setting, as your not going to buy a
scanner with a sheet feeder for every employee.  Additionally this type
of setup would be a lot more common if there was a good
system-config-sane.
