We would like CUPS to have a printer error policy which will cause it to
behave the same as other Unix and windows printing systems, such that when
the backend fails with an error, it will retry submitting the job to the
printer indefinately without going to the next job in the queue or
cancelling the job after X retries.
I.e. No cancelling of the jobs unless done by an operator and no jobs may
jump the queue.
The printer should not be stopped.
Ideally the website and lpstat should report the current status of error
sending the job to the printer, or something similar in line with what
other Unix/windows systems does.
