    FWIW, the current SLP integration with CUPS (hopefully to be released
    in the next patch update, e.g. 1.1.10) provides one registration for
    each local print queue on the system, e.g.:

        ipp://address/printers/MyPrinter1
        ipp://address/printers/MyPrinter2
        ipp://address/printers/MyPrinter3
        ipp://address/printers/MyPrinter4

    We don't try to enumerate all of the possible addresses (e.g. from
    multiple interfaces), although that might be added in a future
    version.
