Great, I am looking forward for your contributions. Feel free to post Issues 
(bugs and feature requests) and Pull Requests on the GitHub of ippusbxd. By the 
way, what is your GitHub user name?

Especially I need a way how to discover from the device which services it 
actually provides (printing, scanning, admin web interface, IPP System Service, 
...) so that ippusbxd advertises it correctly via DNS-SD. Currently, the DNS-SD 
record is hard-coded to only a printer with an admin web interface.

OK, here one must simply check which libraries are fully integrated in the 
distribution's core parts.
