10.5 Allow non-admin users to add and remove printers

I don't understand why you don't enable Parental Controls on these non-admin accounts and check the "Can administer printers" box? Seems much simpler than your solution, and pretty much guaranteed not to change with future system updates.

We're dealing with large numbers of computers here and a large number of users - users that have network-based home directories and those that have portable home directories. It would be a management nightmare to go through and set the parental controls for every portable account that gets created... and I don't think that can even be done for the network-based home directory accounts.
