[Bug 21882] Re: gnome-cups-manager creates printers with invalid names

CUPS printer and class names may contain any printable character, except
space, tab, "/", or "#".  (See "man lpadmin")

Also important to note: printer and class names are *not* case-
sensitive. "myprinter" and "mYpRiNtEr" are exactly the same printer for
CUPS!

A different kind of fish is what an application parsing PPD files may
display as "printer-make-and-model" information. The PPD keywords
"*NickName" and "*ShortNickName" do describe printer models, and do
indeed very often contain spaces. Please do not confuse this with
"printername" as is allowed for CUPS!
