[cups.development] To obtain list for Make/Model boxes ?

I have to write a gui frontend for creating a new cups printer. It seems 
to be the easiest way to use the lpadmin program to create the printer, 
but I have one problem:

Where can I get the lists that the cups "add printer" cgi presents to the 
user (Make and Model) ? Do I have to parse ppd files or is there an easier 
way to obtain that info ?

Many thanks,
