I think what is really required is a view of *all* the print jobs pending on a given
printer q to be displayed on the client print manager.
Is that possible ?

"immediately" because writing to Samba's queue directory is so much faster
than writing to a printer. I believe you can control the printer via Unix
print queue commands, and these can be accessed via a contrived print
command= in a phony balony Samba printer.
