As for driver push via CUPS/SAMBA: Very very not worth doing. It takes a bit of fiddling to get right, most printer drivers react poorly to being pushed in this fashion, and it's generally a big PITA. I simply put the various printer drivers, like all my other drivers, on a plainly marked public read-only share. Works pretty well that way.
Yup, that's the way I would do it if I had more than these two clients. Disappointing, though, that it's so difficult to push the drivers. I'm sure the Samba developers will get that into SWAT some how so it'll be super easy.
