Provide FSG OpenPrinting Printing API (PAPI) as a part of the CUPS package #1767
On the last FSG OpenPrinting Steering Comittee phone meeting we came out with the result that the best for getting PAPI into the Linux distributions (and into all other operating systems using CUPS) is to have it as a part of the CUPS package, as the distributions are always using an up-to-date version of CUPS.
So I suggest to add PAPI to CUPS 1.3.

Also for LSB sandards it is only relevant what is in the distributions. So to get PAPI into LSB 4.0 it is an important step to have it in CUPS.
