Doing the lookup for PPDs after the lookup for devices would allow backends to register PPDs theirselves. Currently when a backend wants the scheduler rebuild ppds.dat on demand (by sending SIGHUP), all backends are called again which can lead to an infinite loop if the backend doesn't make special arrangements for this case.

This RfE is a result of discussion on cups.general on 4/5 Apr 2003
