What's the story about the PPD stuff Till is talking about there? That
scares me the most when I read that mail. Will this be supported by a patch
from openprinting.org? Seeing how Apple upstream is dropping features we
need, I wonder whether the best solution wouldn't be a full-blown fork of
CUPS, where your Avahi patches could also be merged to.
