Quoting Sam Morris (sam at robots.org.uk):

I committed a fix that adds "cups" to Should-Start and Should
-Stop. However, immediately after this, I noticed that cups has:

# X-Start-Before:    samba
# X-Stop-After:      samba

...which is meant to have the same effect.

And, indeed, on a squeeze machine:

cperrier at hapi1:~$ ls -l /etc/rc2.d/*samba*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15  1 mars  13:15 /etc/rc2.d/S03samba -> ../init.d/samba
cperrier at hapi1:~$ ls -l /etc/rc2.d/*cups*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14  1 mars  13:15 /etc/rc2.d/S02cups -> ../init.d/cups

So, well, after all, I wonder if my fix is really needed.
