lpr -> cups

I'm thinking of changing my printing system from good-old lpr to cups.
Mainly because my (home) network computers can find the main printer
more easy with cups than with /etc/printcap (windows and os-x machines)

Installing cups should not be too difficult. I have a very goo how2 for
it. However, what about the printing filters?

With lpr I use apsfilter and that works very very well for all kind of
printjobs. Will cups take care of this too? What do I look for as a
replacement for apsfilter then?
