Well, AFAIK all CUPS front-ends are third-party made, so the existance of a
KDE frontend (and no GNOME frontend) means nothing about CUPS being
KDE-oriented. There is a X frontend (XPP), which should work fine no matter
what kind of X user you are, ne?

If the existance of KUPS without a respective GUPS (heh) bothers you, I
suppose you could just write it. That's exactly what someone who uses KDE
did :-)
