[Samba] Setting the printer location field (cups/samba)

i realized if i use cups for printing (never tried something else because
cusp is given) the field "location" is not used.

If i set the field in cups, samba doesn't know it, it is still empty.

Setting the field from a windows client works without any problems, so i
though about writing a little script that asks cups for the location and
feeds this information into samba.

I didn't found any way to feed the info into samba, neither rpcclient nor
smbclient provides any funktionality that i could use.

Is there any tool i might have overlooked?

Should i write a (whislist) bugreport about this issue?
