  cupsd.conf should not be a dpkg conffile

Status in cups package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The cups package ships a default config at /etc/cups/cupsd.conf as a
  dpkg conffile, and the CUPS server modifies this file automatically
  when settings are changed through GUI tools (e.g., system-config-
  printer-gnome). When the user upgrades to a later version of Ubuntu,
  there is virtually always a conflict on this conffile if they have
  changed any server settings (e.g., enabling printer sharing), and the
  user is presented with a dpkg keep/replace dialog.

  This is a problem because if the user was not technically savvy enough
  to modify the config by hand in the first place, then they are
  certainly not technically savvy enough to understand the conffile
  keep/replace dialog. This makes upgrading Ubuntu scary for non-
  technical users.

  Since the cupsd.conf format does not seem to be undergoing significant
  churn, the simplest solution is probably for cupsd.conf to not be a
  conffile, which can be achieved easily:

  - Stop shipping /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. Continue to ship 
  - In package postinst, if /etc/cups/cupsd.conf does not exist, copy 
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

  If the cupsd.conf format undergoes breaking changes in the future, the
  postinst could rewrite /etc/cups/cupsd.conf upon upgrade.
