Well, while what you describe more or less matches the experience I had with
CUPS 18 months ago, I don't think it still applies today (with the sarge
binaries). Maybe one could charge CUPS with eating a little bit too much
memory, or that funnelling the contents of linuxprinting.org[*] to enhance the
foomatic-db isn't exactly user-friendly, but save from this, I find it very
nice (even if I'm mostly using its lpr-compatible command-line interface.
aaah, if only gnome-cups-manager wasn't leaking memory like a CPU leaks
