I didn't add a smiley face because it is not funny. The fact is that no
printer OEM ever wants to drop any protocol or service. And since this

if they are useful, then hearing continuing demands for NetBEUI (for
example). I would love to drop LPD (fat chance) and would gladly add a
nice, well defined, well behaved protocol.
