Great, this is exactly what I was looking for.

I found some details on this earlier today (the filter part) but I wasn't certain how to make it work for only those queues.

Do I need to drop the number of copies somehow before they get passed off to the next filter or backend?  I'd like for a fix by HP firmware to all of a sudden not end up getting n^2 copies if I put in the PJL code.

We have more current firmware than regular people can get.  HP has released some custom stuff to us to fix problems in direct PDF printing. IPP is still not a part of it.
