I've tried cups and IMO it's a whole lot nicer than the braindamaged BSD
print system that ships with linux.

It appears to have native support for PCL, which partly offsets the lack
of Ghostscript 5 support. 

It'd be nice to at least ship it ( or something else ) as an alternative
to the BSD system. Perhaps we could put it in additionals.
