I see the point in being able to automatically configure the system for
a printer (e.g. laptops that roam).  But I'd far rather than auto-setup
had a manual trigger (i.e. push this button to re-configure).  I find
auto features often get things wrong.  For that sort of reason, I always
disabled the kudzu thing that runs at startup.  I can manually run kudzu
*if* I change a system.
