I took a look at the webpage and it seems like it's a proposal for an
IETF draft right now. Most major companies support it like Epson, HP, Sun,
Microsoft, Xerox, .... Judging from the mailing list archive and the project
layout I guess nobody from the free software community was involved. So
right now it seems like an open big business standard. A quick search on
Altavista didn't reveal an ongoing free software project to actually
_implement_ the proposed IETF draft. I guess there's not too much to
package right now unless someone in the community wants to get some
exercise in client/server programming and lpd ;-)

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
