You'll also miss options like "watermark" and so. All options that are
provided by a custom PrintProcessor are missing.
The driver asks the print processor about it's features and Samba (which
"emulates" the dump winprint print processor) responses with a very
limited set of features.
Unfortunatly there's no way to force Windows to execute print processor
locally with remotly shared queues.
