    Nope, just IPP. CUPS only talks IPP natively, and uses external
    servers for LPD, SMB, and AppleTalk (in the case of LPD, a little
    inetd-based mini-daemon, the rest is SAMBA/CAP/netatalk/etc)

    This shouldn't be a problem with the current CUPS implementation;
    if we add support for multiple addresses per printer, then those
    registrations will likely only be provided to the appropriate
    subnet, not to the network as a whole (otherwise there could be
    routing issues with the advertised URLs...)
