Well, from my view lpr, lprm, lpc, lpq are the new tools while lp,
cancel, lpstat are the compatibility links for tools coming from sysv.

Having those sysv ones in the -clients package together with the native
cups clients, while the bsd ones are in -bsd is a bit strange.

I personaly to not care, because I just have not cups installed. But for
cups users it might be intresting to have -clients split.
