Re: Printer driver UI [proposal]

The problem with this is that it isn't portable to printing systems

but unless you've done something really clever the non-standard
options won't be accessible.  There either needs to be a well-defined
extension to PPD files that allows things like this, or a new file

Fortunately, I can be really clever.

Extended options are visible to non-CUPS enabled clients as PickOne
options with standard values (basically the way things are with the
current GIMP-print driver numeric options...)  This doesn't give you
complete control, but it does allow you to define your own "standard"
