Actually no: for this beta, cups has an 'Obsoletes: LPRng' tag so that
LPRng is removed and replaced with cups.  The current
redhat-config-printer tool can no longer write out correct
configuration files for LPRng/foomatic-3.0.0, which is one of the
reasons for leaving LPRng out.

However it might be that there are things that redhat-switch-printer
does that 'rpm -Uvh cups-*' won't do, and if so that's probably worth
a bugzilla report.  I think the 'alternatives' links should already be
handled, but there may be a 'printconf-backend --force-rebuild'
missing somewhere.
