Which cups packages should be included in the Standalone task?

When installing the standalone profile, the test suite report that
cups is not running after the installation.  This is not very
surprising, as cups is not installed either.  Anyone know if the cups
package should be installed?  Which cups packages should be installed
on standalone machines?

At the moment, these cups related packages are listed in the tasks.
First the networked task installed on all non-standalone machines:

  Depends:     cups, foomatic-db-engine, foomatic-db-gutenprint, \
               foomatic-filters-ppds | cupsomatic-ppd, pnm2ppa, \
               hpijs, hpijs-ppds, hplip, ijsgutenprint
  Suggests:    foo2zjs
  Avoid:       lpr
  Why:         CUPS printer system. This is the server part.
               All hosts can be print servers, so this is part of networked task.

  NeedConfig:  no

And then the desktop-other part installed on all non-main-server and
non-barebone machines:

  Depends:     cups-client, cups-bsd
  Suggests:    foomatic-gui
  Why:         CUPS printer system.  This is the client part
  Responsible: ?
  NeedConfig:  ?

The client part is installed on Standalone, but it is obviously no
longer enough to get the cups process running.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
