Description of problem:
RHL/FC comes with cups as native printing system.
cupsd is started as standalone daemon.
There is cups-lpd binary for backward compatibility,
what can be started by xinetd super daemon, but it is disabled
Package dependency cups->xinetd is defined.
Can you split cups to normal cups packages and cups-compat
package containing cups-lpd binary?
It will remove need to install xinetd package on most systems.
Modern applications/daemons usualy runs as standalone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
