Thanks Jim.  Given the support for CUPS, my inclination would be to
base any LDPS recommendation for printing on the above (smallest)
subset of lpr functionality.  There are a few options I might miss,
but nothing that applications really need to put on the command line

And I would also drop -C and -s from the list and include a strong
recommendation to add options in a dialog box.

Any comments?
