Nope, I've tried, it does not. You still need a workaround called "bounce
queue". I am saying that yes, you can relatively easyly make it work with
either lpr or lprng, but it looks ugly: you need two queus per printer.
But it does not have to look ugly - just lpr should do exactly what i tell
it to: run the filter.
