Not arguing, but what device node?  Where?  When did this start?  What
creates it?  The package doesn't own any files in /var, and I can't see
anywhere in its postinst that it creates such a node.

I print to an ethertalk-interfaced LaserWriter all the time... if it was
supposed to be there, and wasn't, I don't think I'd be printing much.
