libcups is usually present, especially as nowadays most scanners (and especially 
most Linux-friendly ones) have this test page generation unit under the scanning 
mechanics :)

In my opinion libcups should get moved into a project separate from cupsd, as it 
is the standard implementation for IPP in free software, and with the PWG 
(Printer Working Group, http://www.pwg.org/) IPP Scan and IPP System Service 
libcups will not stay a print-only thingy but will also serve for scanning and 
other things.
