I did not know that Universe is activated by default. Then it is no 
problem for the printer drivers to pull "lsb" from Universe. So for most 
users the drivers simply install and "just work".

But how is it working with commercial support customers who buy 
LSB-based commercial software? And how do system-config-printer and 
Jockey behave for these customers if due to missing "lsb" (when Universe 
is turned off) the printer driver packages cannot get installed?
