Some scanners need overrides set in sane's configuration for them to work
properly.

(For example my ScanMagic 1200 UB Plus needs override
"mustek-scanexpress-1200-ub-plus" otherwise xsane and friends will fail to
connect to it. This is not set by mcc.)

Some scanners should be auto-detected, as mcc already attempts to detect the
scanner. However considering that these scanners may use the same usb vendor
and product ids, it would be nice to have an option to manually set the
overrides in mcc. (As it seems proper auto-detection of the device may not be
possible.)

This would prevent a user complaining about a device not working after using
mcc to configure it and it's firmware. (If needed.) 

As it is, a user may need to lookup the sane back end's documentation to figure
out why it does not work, and alter the config files manually. Even if the
scanner was auto-detected.
