[Samba] Printing notification

I feel like this must be in the documentation somewhere, but I can't seem to
find it.

Is there any way to make Samba send WinPopUp notification when a document
finishes printing, like Windows NT does?  I'm doing some custom work with a
print filter where this would be really handy.  Alternatively, is there any
way to make smbclient send a message to a username instead of to a machine
name?  If so I could incorporate the notification into my filter script.
The problem is that the print filter knows the username of the person doing
the printing, but doesn't have any way of finding out the machine name.
