Very well; handling this case was basically the major design goal.

Nether.  eggcups now tracks the job as it moves from the local queue to
the remote printer.  

The way things are typically set up now, a job is submitted to the local
cupsd, which immediately forwards it on to the remote server via IPP. 
Our D-BUS patch for cupsd has it send back the remote jobid, which
causes eggcups to begin polling that job on the remote printer.

Local jobs are treated basically the same as remote jobs are.
