Please note that system-config-printer has many more features (you can
set default printer settings, server settings, etc.). GNOME control
center's tool is _very_ limited (as usual for new GNOME versions).
I can't even add network printers by URL in GNOME control center. It
also complains about firewalld not running when I try to add a network
printer, but firewalld doesn't even seem to have a Debian package.
Still, if people can't find system-config-printer then maybe it doesn't
make sense to include it by default anyway.
