The Gutenprint PPDs explicitly reference "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertogutenprint.5.X", which means when Gutenprint was upgraded from 5.2 to 5.3, printing stopped working for Gutenprint-based printer drivers until the driver was manually changed in the CUPS administration panel. This is a terrible UX, and took over an hour to debug for me.
