Bug Description

When I add a printer with the printer setup tool of GNOME Control Center I get a list like

Artisan 710
PX-B700
CLP-300
FooJet
LaserJet

It would be much easier for the user when he gets

Epson Artisan 710
Epson PX-B700
Samsung CLP-300
Acme FooJet
HP LaserJet

This is a regression compared to Quantal. There system-config-printer was used which did it correctly.
