Description of problem:
The default names for the printer queues are different between
system-config-printer and hal_lpadmin.  This causes two printer queues
to come up when configuring a printer via Kudzu on boot and when it is
detected by HAL.  system-config-printer should move to using hal's
format because it is more descriptive.  Hal's format is as follows:

<printer model>-<usb port number>

The model is converted to lowercase and whitespace is converted to dashes.

If it makes it easier the usb port number can be changed to the usb
device number.  I like port number better because if you plug the
printer into the same port each time you will get the same number.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a printer with kudzu on boot


Actual Results:  you will see two configured printers queues.

Expected Results:  One printer queue.

We don't know the port number at the time the name is generated.  You
can specify the name yourself though, using --Xadd-local --name ...
