Are you serious? You want the users to always look at the conffile list,
just in case the package has declared the wrong file at its conffile?
And you don’t even consider this an issue?

I do. I lost a printcap. Of course, using unstable, I expect things to
break and I have restored the file already. But I still consider this a
bug. A dummy package would be the nice way. Perhaps even depending on
lpr-ng; users do not have to update, they can put lpr-ppd on hold.
