I am very glad to have the printer configuration module as I do not want to
configure CUPS manually.

Yes you have a point there.

OSX also uses CUPS, but the printer configuration is a small settings on the desktop and not a system wide configuration that you need first that it exists.

I still wonder, if there is a printer database, why it is not possible to just plug the printer, have some rule match the id, pick the right ppd, adjust/restart cups, everything automatically (basically what Windows does if you throw the vendor CDs to the trash first).
