1. I swear I read from you in a post that all packages were already
tagged for lfs73, so I did not bother looking at this.

If you do not mind, I would like to change it to lfs73checked, I use it

2. About the problem with the GIMP plugin for sane-frontends, found
references for it, e.g., in launchpad [1], reported in 2007, confirmed
in 2012, but no fix until now.

They mentioned and I tested:

$ xscanimage -gimp
xscanimage: GIMP support missing.

In [1], a work around in GIMP: first "create" a blank image in GIMP
using the menu or Ctrl-N, then, by magic, the plugin works.

Is it worth mentioning this in the page, next to the instruction to
create the symlink?

3. I would like to include a desktop file for xscanimage (took
xsane.desktop and just changed the package related words):

cat > /usr/share/applications/xscanimage.desktop << "EOF"
[Desktop Entry]
Name=XScanImage - Scanning
Comment=Acquire images from a scanner
ln -sv -f ../sane/xscanimage-icon-48x48-2.png \
