after I just saw that we have a very usefull parameter

spoolss: architecture = ...

that not even most of the developers know about, I want to remind that we
discussed and decided the policy that ALL new options (parametric or not) have
to be documented in the man pages.

Also if there is not a reason to make an option parametric (like for vfs
modules) then the option should be a real option, that is also printed out by
testparm -v.

As a result of that policy, a review+ should NOT be granted if the
corresponding man page entry is not added at the same time.
