Close.  The "lp", "lpstat", "cancel", etc. commands come from the
cupsys-client package and replace the SysV interface.

The "lpr", "lpq", "lprm", etc. commands are replacements of the BSD
interface, provided by the cupsys-bsd package.

In terms of implementation, that is correct.  In terms of (most of
the) interface that isn't correct.

(I hope I'm not confusing anyone here ...)
