	I'm not quite sure about what exactly you are asking, but
if you talking about the 'lpq command' parameter on the smb.conf,
you should be able to use the common variables. The real question
is: "the lpq command that you are using has support to username?"

	I'm using etch on my desktop, 'man lpq' told me that lpq
supports -U, so you should be able to use:

		lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -P%p -U%u

	Hmmm... the Samba should be able to pass the right
information of who is connecting to the share (or querying
the printer) even if the command is running as root.
