That's the reason why
a) using LPRng and
b) maintaining a Debian package for LPRng
is much easier for me compared to lpr.

BTW: There are maintained versions of lpr, but there are that many
(the *BSDs, and probably some Linux versions). Unfortunately the *BSD
versions don't compile on Linux, and I don't know which Linux-ported
lpr versions are well-maintained.
