Bug#401981: cupsys: cupsd.conf no longer has "Printcap /var/run/cups/printcap" line

Package: cupsys
Version: 1.2.7-1
Severity: normal

I just upgraded from Sarge to Etch, moving from cupsys 1.1.23-10sarge1 to
1.2.7-1 in the process.

I noticed that the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf distributed with 1.2.7-1 no longer
includes a Printcap line, and thus CUPS is now putting the printcap file in
its default location of /etc/printcap.  (The Sarge file includes the line
  Printcap /var/run/cups/printcap
in the distributed cupsd.conf file.)

I saw in the changelog.Debian.gz entry from 10 May 2003 that this file
was specifically moved to /var/run/cups/printcap in response to bug #187954,
but wasn't able to find any changelog.Debian or NEWS.Debian entries
mentioning that it was moved back.

If the Printcap line was left out of the config file on purpose, it would
be helpful to have the reasons for the move explained somewhere.  If it
wasn't left out on purpose, should the line be added back in?
