This approach sounds the best to me.  I hate to disrupt the xprt
package, even if no one actually uses it.

Are you comfortable with calling the X.Org XPRINT server binary

Personally, I think it would be a good idea to rename the server binary
entirely to emphasize its rebirth, but that decision is best left to the
upstream authors.
