It's surely possible to install cups client only (as of Wheezy the
package is called cups-client) and print via one CUPS server over a
network.
Such configuration requires each client to have ~/.cups/client.conf with
the name of server in it, unless you'd want to mess with CUPS
auto-discovery feature.
