I just used it as a mark for when/if removing it, since they all depend
on BR2_PACKAGE_CUPS being selected, not needed really.
Ideally something like BR2_LEGACY would be best for the users to get a
big warning, problem is that introducing it for just one package isn't
very useful, and it would set a precedent for other packages to lag
behind as well.
