Bug Description

hpcups.drv causes duplicate PPD names to be shown by 'lpinfo -m' due to multiple "Product" attributes per file.

For example:

$ /usr/sbin/lpinfo -m |grep hp-deskjet_920c
drv:///hp/hpcups.drv/hp-deskjet_920c.ppd HP Deskjet 920c, hpcups 3.9.8
drv:///hp/hpcups.drv/hp-deskjet_920c.ppd HP Deskjet 920c, hpcups 3.9.8
drv:///hp/hpcups.drv/hp-deskjet_920c.ppd HP Deskjet 920c, hpcups 3.9.8
drv:///hp/hpcups.drv/hp-deskjet_920c.ppd HP Deskjet 920c, hpcups 3.9.8

This is a cups 1.4 issue. Cups 1.3.9 does not have duplicate entries.

Multiple *Product attributes per file are valid when one PPD supports multiple printer models. See Adobe "PostScript Printer Description File Format Specification" section 5 Keywords.
