I have never pulled in the CUPSwrapper driver, and have never had a
problem with the printer.

Mainly the "pushbutton scan" and other fancy scanning options from the
"usb driver" -- I mean, I can walk over to the thing, and hit the "scan
to SFTP" button and get a PDF, but that's about the extent of my "scan
back to a PC" ability.  There are also a couple of "on the printer"
options that require a windows compter (although, thinking about it,
those may be more like "scan to SMB share").

But scan-to-pdf is perfectly acceptable for my scanning needs.
