Oops. It should be, but it is not the same at this moment.

=/etc/cups L-n

Will not recurse, while

/etc/cups$ L-n

Will recurse for --check but not for --init. I've found the problem for 
this in the code, but I am not sure what I will break by fixing this 
issue. For now, using equal rules is the way to go.

Yes, I can confirm this.
