x-window-system is just a metapackage (a bunch of dependencies) that can be 
removed without any worries.

It's a Mozilla problem. Xprint is an initiative that spawned from the Mozilla 
project. It's basically a translator that converts the X protocol to 
Postscript. Also, it's pretty telling that the version in Debian is 
0.1.0.alpha1-10, with no corresponding release being offered by the project 
itself. It might get better with a transition to X.org which Xprint seems to 
have become a part of.
