It is not really true that samba (really: CUPS) is not able to 'count'
pages: there are tools/filters that can rather effectively count pages
for most of the printer languages...
The real topic here is... that pages have to be counted at printer, not
at spooler level: eg, i can send a 200 page print to a printer (and
CUPS count it), but paper was empty, i've changed my idea and i delete
it on the printer.
Effectively i've not printed nothing.
To count pages at printer level you have to use some sort of complex
'toolkit'; the only free one i know is PyKota:
that seems a bit dead.
To count pages at spooler level, you can use some filter (based on
pkpgcounter, a pykota component) and a web interface, see:
(i use that).
