[Samba] Automating cupsaddsmb or some alternative

I am developing a print server for a client, and I need to make the ability
to add and configure print servers as simple as possible.  So far, cups and
samba are top notch, but there are two problems I have.

One, I need to restart the samba service every time I add a printer.
Two, I need to log in via console or SSH to run cupsaddsmb, and I need to
then authenticate.

I was wondering if there was a way that I could streamline this a bit so
they'd never have to do any of that.  Also, not killing samba would be
nice, as there will be up to 200 people per print server.
