Currently, CUPS exits without an error message on my box.  I've reinstalled
it three times in a month, and it still doesn't work right.

I've filed a bug, no response so far from the maintainer.

I wish there was an alternative, but short of writing my own I appear to be
stuck.  And I'm not good enough to write my own.
