If you are not using a printer, it is also security 101 to disable it's
listening service.

I quite like OpenRC but am currently looking into file-rc, which I would
prefer if direct changes to it were kept but I will have to find the
time to work out how to do that without using commands like update-rc.d
which are not my preference.

I guess I simply prefer the OpenBSD method of an include file that
would override runlevel.conf and may have to look into adding that to
file-rc or a fork at some point.
