Bug#935166: Re-instate Debian-9's remote CUPS queue naming model

Package: cups
Severity: wishlist
Version: 2.2.10-6

on a Debian Edu setup that got upgraded from Debian 8 to Debian 10, I noticed today that remote CUPS queue naming is completely unusable on networks where different printer queues share the same driver (name).

I propose the following change to Debian's default cups-browsed.conf:

root@disklserver:/# diff -u /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf.orig /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf
--- /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf.orig	2019-08-20 12:53:43.619548720 +0200
+++ /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf	2019-08-20 12:53:48.687534966 +0200

With this change (it should hit Debian buster, finally, IMHO), the queue naming style of remote CUPS queues gets changed back from

  DNS-SD style: <driver-name-with-underscores>_<host>


  RemoteName style: <queue-as-named-on-remote-server>

Please consider enforcing this configuration default on Debian system's. Upstream's default is not really usable on big networks with many printers.
