Hi Roger, and sorry for my delay in answering, 

(fwiw, I don't know much about gutenprint, so… Maybe Till has a better 
opinion on the matter.)

Under my current understanding and given the fact that many of the already-
named printer-driver-* are in fact cups-specific, I would only:

* rename cups-driver-gutenprint to printer-driver-gutenprint,
* include printer-driver-gutenprint to printer-driver-all's list of 

and leave the others as they currently are. Rationale being that cups-
driver-gutenprint, from the descriptions of the packages, is sufficent for 
cups to be able to print to the supported printers.

(Rationale² is also that if someone wants to support non-cups spoolers and 
consistent naming, they should come with proposals.)
