Hmm... I can't seem to find one related to this. The closest is a
request to add better remote host paramaters to lpr & co.
I had a look in the code and it seems that the backends aren't involved
at all when cancelling jobs. So if you're designing better interaction
there will we also get effects like aborting prints that are currently
running on the printer or are spooled there? (provided the protocol the
printer speaks support this of course)
