buf->description for printers?

Getting this whole printing code system together...reply.c calls printing.c
which contains all the queue parsing code...all nice and good, with stuff
like buf->job and buf->time, but is there a buf->description field that
might allow the generic LPQ I'm trying to hack in to pass back a Description
line to the Windows machine?  If not, does the description pass over some
completely different interface?  I have *no* idea what's going on with the
buffer creation code...

Man, I wish this was the end of my pain...I've got a nwqstat command that
only seems to want to extract a print queue from a novell system *after*
deleting a job, I've got files that I can only *hope* I'm going to be able
to parse for the description line we can't extract yet from the windows

Microsoft gives shoddy servers, and Novell gives shoddy clients...here I am,
in the middle, dealing with both...ugh.
