Why?  I was simply inquiring about changing behavior from stopping to 
deleting a printer when no backend is found.  I will fix the problem 
that caused me to arrive at such a configuration and did not want to 
discuss it here as it is not relevant to CUPS.  I only posted the 
details at Helge's request.

My problem just got me to thinking that perhaps the current behavior of 
CUPS should change, thus the post to the list for comments.
