Thank you for your readiness to check whether support for mapping PPD
options for PIN printing to IPP can be added to CUPS.

I will file a bug with PPDs that have respective options
(probably next week, when I have a reply from a colleague on what
devices are known to use that functionality inside our organisation and
I have searched on the Internet for additional PPDs using that).

Your help is really appreciated.
