I can not speak to how complicated (or not) that it is to develop
CUPS, or for the Debian CUPS Maintainers to package and maintain it.
Setting up print queues can be a bit of a hassle if (like me) you
don't do it often, but once you get it created, it's done. It took
me an evening, 2 years ago, and haven't touched it since then.
So, I *can* and *do* unequivocally affirm that *using* CUPS is an
simple as rolling off a log.
