Not sure if it matters, but I remember reading that upstream explicitly 
does not support cups installations without a local cupsd.

The explanation sounded hand-wavy to me at the time, as in "everybody 
should be able to run a local printer", and we do not enable cupsd on 
Arch clients @work that print to a central cups server. But that's the 
official position.
