I was trying to figure out why I couldn't manage color profiles on a
printer shared by a Samba server, and found a posting in this mailing
list from May 23, 2003 by John Reilly that says it's not possible:
http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2003-May/067922.html - I quote:

Is this still true? Is there anything I can do without having an
intimate knowledge of Samba internals? Is there anyone I could pay to
have this implemented?

Thank you,
