> Holding Jobs for Later Printing

> The -o job-hold-until=when option tells CUPS to delay printing until the
> "when" time, which can be one of the following:

    > * -o job-hold-until=indefinite; print only after released by the user or
> an administrator
    >     * -o job-hold-until=day-time; print from 6am to 6pm local time
    > * -o job-hold-until=night; print from 6pm to 6am local time
    > * -o job-hold-until=second-shift; print from 4pm to 12am local time
    > * -o job-hold-until=third-shift; print from 12am to 8am local time
    > * -o job-hold-until=weekend; print on Saturday or Sunday
    > * -o job-hold-until=HH:MM; print at the specified UTC time

Okay - I'm definitely open to this possibility.  Do the CUPS Windows drivers support the use of these options?  The main place where I need the job hold support is for Windows-based clients, so I need to make sure it works okay there.
