LocalTalk and Modem/Printer Port_programmable to bringing to life in OSX??

apple put away in OS X the LocalTalk interface like the Modem/Printer Port.
But OS X is still working on PB G3 but not on those ports!

Under Unix it must be programmable to enter in the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) to bring to life a LocalTalk interface.

People jumping to OSX must they changing the LocalTalk Printer into a Ethernet Printer???

As a graphic designer I work with a HP 6MP (Serial/LocalTalk) and a Epson Stylus Color 3000 (Serial).
My choice is only to stay with OS 9 or to buy Ethernet cards for my old printers still working very very well.
OS X has a driver for the HP 6MP but not in LocalTalk in his old language!

What happen in apple philosophy.
Please please programmer from unix do something because I'm not alone to have this problem.
This could be my best christmas surprise!
