One feature of printcap cache time is the 0 setting to disable the
rescan. I'm not sure how expensive remove_stale_printers() and
load_printers() are if we have a huge printing system with a lot of
Therfore it might be usefull to have a general, configureable reload
time with a reasonable default value (600 or 750 seconds for example).
It might also be usefull to allow something like:
config reload time = printing:600 file:0
And yes, if this is wished I'll implement it.
