Description of problem:
Functionality required to set up printer sharing using the
system-config-printer tools are only available in the GUI component.
This is a problem for a number of reasons.

1. Most systems, sharing printers are servers and server mostly
   doesn't even have X installed. Installing X just to get this
   functionality would be a shame.

2. Things are even worse because it seems impossible (pardon my
   posible ignorance) to modify the created configuration files to
   share whatever printer i want to share. And then have those
   manually added configuration settings kept across invocations of
   the system-config-printer tools. (or across printer system rpm
   updates, which seems to toss those things away as well)

This functionality is badly needed in the system-config-printer-tui
component for reasons laid out above.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. From a console launcs system-config-printer-tui
2. Try to set up a printer available to other machines on the network

Actual Results:  Not possible

Expected Results:  Should be possible
