Hmm.  Actually I wish drivers wouldn't do that, but I guess it isn't
always avoidable.

To recap on why this data needs to be stored: we need the device ID,
obtained from the device at connection time, at the point where the
device has already been disconnected.  This is so we can match it to the
existing CUPS queue by constructing a device URI and comparing with
those of the existing queues.

Looks like I'll need to investigate Martin's suggestion of using
IMPORT{program} then.
