I get very many PPD files from printer manufacturers to be included in the
OpenPrinting database and in Linux distributions. Many of these PPDs
failed the current cupstestppd (CUPS 1.3.8).

rejected by CUPS when creating a print queue with it. So I cannot use
cupstestppd to determine whether I MUST patch a PPD to assure that CUPS
will accept it. I also cannot use cupstestppd in a printer setup tool to
pre-check whether the PPD used for the print queue (for example a PPD
supplied by the user) will get accepted by CUPS.
So what I would like to have is a command line switch in cupstestppd
making it fail PPDs which CUPS would not accept and pass PPDs which CUPS
