[Samba] Printing; privileges separation

Hi list,

I'm using samba 3.0.26a with cups as printing backend, which are both 
working fine. However, I would like to grant all users access to all print 
jobs, but without granting them the right to add or modify printers and 
printer settings.

When I grant users the SePrintOperatorPrivilege privilege, they can indeed 
cancel other people's jobs, but then they can also rename printers on the 
server (which breaks things).

Does anyone know if it is possible to separate access to these two 
operations, or to grant normal users the right to remove other people's jobs 
without them having the SePrintOperatorPrivilege priv?

Thanks in advance for any input,
