Thanks for noticing them.

They're indeed quite old:

- cups replaced cupsys in 1.3.7-6 in February 2008.
- cupsys was last a transitional package in lenny (1.3.8-1+lenny10) which got
  completely removed in 1.4.4-1 June 2010, well before the Squeeze release.
- Squeeze released without any cupsys package.

Given that I don't see much value in migrating them on the actual cups package 
which is now two 1.x version ahead, I'm rather in favour of closing them with 
a 1.4.4-1 version and a message saying "if you can reproduce this bug on 
Wheezy, please reopen that bug and mark is as found in your version".

Thanks for hunting these old bugs,
