pyppd is a CUPS PPD generator. It holds an compressed archive of PPDs, which
can be listed and retrieved only when needed by CUPS, saving disk space.
This tool is mostly useful as build-dependency for printing driver packages.
For this use, it provides a Debian-specific dh_pyppd Debhelper addon that
handles the pyppd launch and the cleanup after it.

dump instead of the unreproducible python pickle. This should bring most
packages of the printing stack closer to reproducibility
