When using cupsaddsmb to add a printer, it uses the queue name for the name
of the driver (Long Printer name).
This results in messages from windows such as "You have successfully
installed your printername" instead of "You have successfully installed
your HP Laserjet 4050"
It would be greatly preferable if there were a way to specify the "long
printer name" (also used as the driver name and expected by windows to be
the device make/model.) This could be provided as a command-line option to
cupsaddsmb, or it could be taken from the CUPS device description since the
suggested use for the field specifies the model information in a way that
would make sense.
