    I'm now working in a more "politically correct" way around that issue [1]. The
    outline is that we _add_ a backend to CUPS[2], which will bring back USB
    addressing by /dev/.. name. Then, we could implement udev rulesets which will
    create "by-id" symlinks to the usblpX devices.
    My work is at github under "cups-usbbackend".

    [1] it is a blocking point for my business, as I cannot attach a second
    [2] it could remain a complementary package until we really agree we want that
    code mainline.
