Is anyone still using /usr/bin/lpr ?

As far as I know, cups has been the only way to print on modern printers
for years now.
The lpr binary from the base system also conflicts with lpr from the cups

Is someone still using the base /usr/bin/lpr and related binaries ?

I'm seriously wondering whether it's still worth it to keep it...
