Many options, like this one, are not documented except in the CUPS book. Moreover,
if you write a filter or backend of your own, you may design the piece of code to
process additional options. Most of the "official" options can be found in one fo the IPP
related RFCs, but it is a bit dedious to search for them.

I'll collect the set of options and corresponding possible values which are valid at our
site (there are a some "home made" options, of course) and will post them via the links
section of the CUPS web site in the near future.
