Description of problem:
1. Should be able to remove a printer with just the name (not the
device, make, model).
2. Should be able to set location/description, all printing options,
sharing, etc. There's lots the command line can't do. This is
important for setting up printers on a network, if you don't want to
spend hours manually GUIing your all your printers after each
reinstall of the OS.
3. A list of printer makes and models would be good to have somewhere
in the docs or as a command-line option to list. Since punctuation
matters and the underscore in the settings file becomes a space in the
command line (or vice-versa), it was hard to find the right name to
type even after poking around in the foomatic database.

Steps to Reproduce:
NA - this is a feature request...
Actual Results: We'd love some! ;-)
Expected Results: We're realistic and patient...
This is all printconf-tui stuff.
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
TUI version no longer exists in FC6, and is replaced by the ability to remotely
configure over IPP.
