Hi Michael,

> To create a static (long-lived) queue, use lpadmin or the web interface with the "everywhere" model.  (lpadmin can work remotely)

I verified that this works with lpadmin. However, lpadmin prompts for
a password, making it not quite feasible to be run in "batch mode". Is
there a way to provide a password or another authentication mechanism
that suits this use-case?
