I'd be using it without any other bin/lp* files. (Using pkgsrc on
non-NetBSD systems.)

Does anyone have an objections to making cups and other lp* packages
install the lp* binaries to libexec/${PKGNAME}/ ?

But for NetBSD, we'd have to convince that lpwrapper is useful. Maybe this
should be send-pr'd.
