regarding STR #2261: was wondering when this feature might be pushed to the active development branch.  it appears to be very much stable in my version of cups-1.2.  i understand that cups-1.2 is not being actively developed anymore (which rather stinks for me, as i really need this feature).

if i need to recreate the patch against 1.3, please let me know.  i'd be happy to do so.  i've done all the leg work here.  it's not a particularly intrusive patch, so i don't see any reason for it not to be pushed to trunk.
