I actually missed that there is a separate policy for cmake. The files have
been relicensed.

What do you have in mind here? getUnitString just matches the enum of libksane
to a unit suffix string, it does not format the values in any way.

This works if there are only a few options available, imho not so much when
there are quite a few options. But I guess one could implement a maximum
height up to which the window is scaled. For now, I implemented that the size
of the options window at least gets remembered. But I will look at it again.

This has been implemented just now.

Hmm, how does this look? I don't see a difference.
There actually is a subtle difference between how this string and the others
are obtained: Scan area size is a custom option of libksane and is translated
there, whereas the others are coming from SANE directly. However, they are all
appended the same way with "%1:" in Skanpage.

There has been a discussion already to move the scanner name to the window
title like it is done in Skanlite. This would save some space. Also, the
comboboxes are currently not scaled to their content width. Then there would
also be some possible savings.
Personally I find the quick access that the comboboxes provide for the most
important options very useful.

Thanks for the feedback!
