be carefull when editing files under: /var/lib/dpkg! If you brake something
important here your debian system is not updateable anymore (apt & dpkg
doesn't work anymore!). Always make a backup before changing something here!
I can't say it often enough.
With "apt-get install --reinstall <package>" it is more or less harmless when
you brake something in your system, but in the dpkg-files itself you have to
be very careful.
and don't forget that an: apt-get update will override your changes again
(afaik). at least the next cups upgrade will do so.
