Ignoring printer errors

This might be a bit off-topic (and for samba-general) but when thinking about 
handling such error codes - what about providing an api to communicate 
printer settings?
CUPS currently does not support the IPP_SET_PRINTER_ATTRIBUTES call, but if 
implemented, SAMBA could e.g. pass options from the printer_info_2 struct to 
the spooler.
In the first place I'm thinking of the printer attributes. 
"Keep printed files" would be such a case.
I think such a "set printer command" could make some users happy.

It should not be that hard to do a proper mapping from CUPS error codes
to the W_ERR or NT_STATUS equivalent.
