I think this is a good idea. Users see everything which they can do, but
are not bothered by options which are not available for the printer's
current configuration. But we must assure that the admin sets the
"Installable Options" really corresponding to how the printer is
actually equipped, for example with an extra step for the "Installable
Options" in the add-printer wizard.
