Working on a new version of LPR right now. 

1st release is going to have 
    -o and support for PS options (Funded work - done)
    automake/autoconf (almost done)
    lots of code cleanup (ongoing)
    library interface to printcap (e.g. enumerate printers, add
printcap entry.) 
    library interface to print spooler functions (i.e. C call to
submit job, fetch Q...)
    queue monitoring interface/api (funded work - rather large project
details later)

Future plans include:
       Depricate LPR protocol maybe use IPP. Last year I would have
       gone whole heartedly into IPP. However, after talking to
       several printer vendors. I am not as convinced that it is the
       way to go.
