Well, I'm not either :)  But I've had *some* interaction with them.  I
only mention this because, by your own admission, you will likely end up
in the same boat.

You might be interested in this thread:
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.printing.hplip.devel/353

where David Suffield says "... we have learned a lot since we have
started the HPLIP project and we have learned what is useful and what is
not, so we are looking into the possibility of a daemon-less version of
HPLIP."

If you feel strongly about the way that hplip /should/ work, I urge you
to contact them with your views.
