Yeah, I was planning to remove it from the X.Org packaging as discussed
previously, but not until after the first upload to experimental, but
before moving to unstable. I see no reason to keep two xprint's around.

It's up to you what to do with the monolithic tree, and for the modular
tree I had assumed that xprint would be split off in to its own module like
everything else, which you would then maintain. How's all this sound?
