Since foomatic upstream doesn't package them - but does host them on
linuxprinting.org - I tend to agree with Per. Might be worth
establishing a naming convention (e.g. ppd-<vendor>) though; not to
mention, I think there are already a bunch of free HP vendor ppd files
for their PostScript laser printers that linuxprinting.org hosts that
are separate from foomatic.
