[Printing-architecture] Removal of features in CUPS

Hi Till,

I think that CUPS Browsing is also being removed in 1.6, leaving Avahi
as the sanest of the remaining discovery methods.

The current state of the Avahi support patches is that service
announcement is working in the scheduler, and service discovery is
working in the dnssd backend -- i.e. by manual user intervention.

What is currently missing is automatic service discovery in the
scheduler, so that shared queues can be discovered by CUPS itself as
used to happen with CUPS Browsing.
