Description of problem:
There is no way to tell cups-config-daemon to ignore a printer that is
handled by a vendor-supplied CUPS driver that is not configurable via
foomatic tools. The result is that every time I turn on my
(configured and working) Epson Stylus 4600 printer I get a popup
dialog informing me that the driver was not detected and asking me to
select a driver. I have my choice of clicking on "Cancel", knowing
that I will be asked again the next time the printer is turned on, or
selecting some driver from the supplied list and causing a bogus print
queue to be created.
There need to be a way to tell cups-config-daemon to ignore a device,
similar to the "ignore" option in kudzu. Currently, the only
satisfactory workaround is "chkconfig cups-config-daemon off".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on a USB printer model that is not handled through a driver
known to foomatic.
