So this is what gives me the printer icon in the notification tray in
fedora? Ubuntu has something similar? That's gnome-cups-icon, right?
What's the story/comparison there?

Right, Ubuntu uses gnome-cups-manager which has gnome-cups-icon to do
this. gnome-cups-manager also has an UI which make possible to configure
whatever printer you want, eggcups has not such feature (it autodetects
USB printers but if you have a smb or a lp printer you are screwed).
Which means that some people will probably install both (Ubuntu will not
drop gnome-cups-manager by example) and get duplicated features ...
Does it make sense to use the "active print job watching" feature of eggcups (the part that Colin is proposing for inclusion) with the printer management features of gnome-cups-manager?

It seems that with an appropriately patched CUPS, eggcups should give more accurate information about the print jobs (since it gets notified by the print daemon, rather than polling).
