[STR New]

It would be great to provide the job-originating-host-name, meaning the IP
of the computer sending the print request, to the backend driver via an
environment variable.

This information is usefull for all backends that need to communicate with
the origin, like fax printers (I'm developing one, so I'm in the need ;)
