Stopping Hotplug from using just the printer

I am running the Hoary Hedgehog build of Ubuntu. Currently I have to use VMware to use my printer. I have to add both "usblp" and "usbhid" to my /etc/hotplug/blacklist file or the hotplug system will load those modules and take control of my printer. The only problem with that is that I use a USB mouse that needs the "usbhid" module. For the time being I plugged in an old PS2 mouse which works fine. I was just curious if there was an ignore option in modules.conf or something similair that would allow "usbhid" to only control my mouse. Because for some reason if I just disable "usblp" hotplug will try to use "usbhid" when I plug in my printer.
