Hmm, I wonder why there isn't a corresponding foomatic database entry.  There
was a plan at one stage for foomatic to switch over to being PPD-based instead
of XML-based; maybe it's because of that.

I'll ask the maintainer.

0.6.142-1 implements the new PPD load procedure, taking a copy of the original PPD.
