Automatic CUPS printer setup

Te only way I can see this happening is i you setup a hcl and only support those devices, after you choose th devices you deem work you could setup every piece of hardware and save the configuration somewhere, when a certain device id is chosen by udev you can have it run a script that would copy the configuration files for whatever device was detected and everything should work
