Would certainly be nice to have something reasonable happen when I
connect a scanner and hit the hardware scan button.

But what should that be?  From a quick look at the (possibly out of
date) gnome-scan web page it seems to me that it is trying to be an
application.  That approach may have similar problems to those of
sound-juicer.  Basically this is somewhat hard to solve if we don't
have a rhythmbox for photos... unless we do something like the
screenshot tool where we offer a few fixed options:
  1. Save to Photos
  2. Upload to Flickr
  3. Upload to Picasa
  4. Save as PDF

Incidentally whatever we do we should do the same for cameras...
