This could prove interesting to end users as some may not be able to 
install printer for want of breaking out of driver search. IOW if the 
admin does not specify a printer type in the conf the end user will not 
be able to install the driver even if they now what the printer is. All 
they can do is exit the printer setup. Possibly a warning during parse 
of smb.conf in log.smbd to the fact no driver specified?
