I just emailed Tim directly about this, but I thought I
should mention it on the list. Yes, that comment should be deleted.
I think that we probably will not need to do wildcarding within
pattern either, since I do not think that any of the kernel drivers
are looking for elements of comma separated lists or anything like
that. (In contrast, other user level applications, like setting
up /etc/printcap, definitely need to do that, to scan for supported
languages and possibly other features.) So, the pattern matching
will probably just be something as simple as strstr(ids[n].pattern,printer_id).
