I saw this post from 2003... any action since then?

I'm in a similar boat, but a little bit worse: in my lab, we have to pay 
for printing, and I don't want everybody's. How can I let individual 
users connect to SMB-shared printers (not under my administrative 
control) using their own uname/passwd?
