I will do so, then.
However, the other parts of the PPD spec for Debian will not be followed by
hplip until all other issues are fixed, i.e. I will still ship the PPDs in a
hplip/ subdir off the toplevel PPD directory for now, and that contains
hpijs PPDs mixed with "pure" postscript PPDs.
Is it desireable to forecefully case-normalize the PPD filenames? HP uses
basically the "toss a coin" way of selecting which case they use on these
things, and linuxprinting.org did not fix it upon acceptance of the PPDs.
