[Samba] Samba 3 and Windows 8 Point'n'Print drivers

Hi list,
To my best knowledge samba 3 does not support level 4 drivers used by 
Windows 8 for Point'n'Print (If that is not the case could you let me 
know the minimal version of samba required?)

According to 
Windows 8 should be able to use level 3 drivers, but it does not seem to 
work for me.

Are they any workarounds that can be applied (client or server side) to 
make this happen?

I know there was a small patch submitted to the list quite a while ago, 
but i would rather not do that.

Many thanks
