[STR Closed w/o Resolution]

OK, after further consideration will we not be implementing this.

However, this is *not* a problem because there is a really, really good
workaround: define a new banner file format which is consumed by a filter
which produces PostScript.

The advantage is that this approach will work with *all* versions of CUPS
since 1.0 and it allows you to localize, handle Unicode text, etc. without
the hassle of burdening the scheduler with more pre-job processing.
