I can understand that.  But I think this is just an extension of the
existing N ways GNOME can be built; e.g. in theory it's buildable and
runnable with HAL, without CUPS, with old X server, etc.  So the testing
aspect is pretty hard already.  

eggcups is really a pretty small amount of code; the way I would think
of it is as on the same level as the HAL patch for gnome-vfs.  It just
happens to be in its own tarball.

Yeah, and I've heard that Ubuntu is looking at picking it up as well,
which motivated me to get it into 2.12.
