Should we not move from the yast printer setup as default to the desktop tools and make that experience as flawless as possible? Then the yast printer module does not to be installed by default and we remove one element that can complicate things?
Right. That should have happened a longer time ago. But "something" in openSUSE or SUSE didn't or couldn't make the decision to let the YaST printer module RIP (regardless what developers tell who know its code ;-)
Eum... I'm not sure every desktop contains a proper printer configuration tool. And there is text mode too (think a print server).
The CUPS web interface should work in most environments.
Some printer packages (e.g. hplip) ship their own configuration tools which work in text mode. For true command line heroes, there's lpadmin and lpoptions.
I'm not against providing something more user-friendly, but we have to face the fact that yast2-printer probably won't be it.
