I don't think so. There is lots of new development around Xprint, new
drivers, RENDER ext., OpenGL and application support. That sounds not
that it is going to become obsolete.

In my opinion there is a difference between 'not supporting' and
aggressively spreading the claim that 'Xprint is obsolete' and pissing
on everyone who opposes that opinion or shows interest in Xprint
support for their application. What Red Hat did in the past was
looking more like a witch hunt and a shame for the open source
