Begin phasing out printing-config in Fall 2012

In theory, LPRng queues will no longer exist after June. There is therefore no reason to ever invoke "mit-lpr". I'd like to do a phased transition away from printing-config, with the following stages:

  • Eliminate support for LPRng queues, and begin warning when converting LPRng-style arguments
  • Break LPRng-style arguments

Until the F5 issues suck less, we still can't use stock CUPS, but hopefully this eliminates some complexity.

We've been yelling at LPRng users since April 2012, and the killing LPRng stuff is tracked in #1021
