As you said NT assumes a lot of things. For the spoolss pipe, it assumes
that Samba can respond to all the api calls and at all the differents

Once and for all, I haven't checked-in the code because the spoolss
support is not simply 3 calls to enumerate printers and jobs and print to
a given printer, but a complete sub-system.

I already coded 15 calls which represent around 180 Kbytes but I have some
more to do. I'm working on Samba as much as I can but I'm doing it during
my free time.
