For local printers, I configure "lpr -Pqueue", with queue taken from the
txt fields zeroconf reports. Network printers are configured as
"cupsdoprint -H address:port", address and port also provided by
zeroconf. It works with all dozen printers detected @work; I was
surprised to see them - I even didn't know some of them before.

Of course, it is just sample code, and I'm not a CUPS expert. I hope
people could improve it.

OK, tomorrow, tonight is too late for me. My average day starts at 6am
(you know, I am in Germany).
