Description: pyppd
        =====
        
        ``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.
        
        Instalation
        -----------
        
        To install ``pyppd``, you can use:
        
            # pip install pyppd
        
        Or download the source package, uncompress, and run as root:
        
            # python setup.py install
        
        It depends on Python 2.x or 3.x (http://www.python.org) and XZ Utils
        (http://tukaani.org/xz/).
        
        Usage
        -----
        
        At first, you have to create a PPD archive. For such, put all PPDs (they might
        be gzipped) you want to add in the archive inside a single folder (which can
        have subfolders), then run:
        
            $ pyppd /path/to/your/ppd/folder
        
        It'll create ``pyppd-ppdfile`` in your current folder. This executable only
        works with the same Python version that you used to generate it. You can test
        it by running:
        
            $ ./pyppd-ppdfile list
        
        And, for reading a PPD from the archive, simply do:
        
            $ ./pyppd-ppdfile cat pyppd-ppdfile:MY-PPD-FILE.PPD
        
        For CUPS to be able to use your newly-created archive, copy ``pyppd-ppdfile``
        to ``/usr/lib/cups/driver/`` and you're done.
        
        The generated ``pyppd-ppdfile`` can be arbitrarily renamed, so that more than
        one packed repository can be installed on one system. This can be useful if
        you need a better performance, be it in time or memory usage. Note that also
        the PPD URIs will follow the new name:
        
            $ ./pyppd-ppdfile list
            pyppd-ppdfile:LasterStar/LaserStar-XX100.ppd
            $ mv pyppd-ppdfile laserstar
            $ ./laserstar list
            laserstar:LaserStar/LaserStar-XX100.ppd

        Issues
        ------
        
        * Add unit tests.
        * When testing if the PPD generated from the \*Product line already exists in a
          \*1284DeviceID line, we do a case-sensitive test. I think it should be case-
          insensitive.
        * Generate manpage.
