On _remote_ CUPS queues? I haven't had that working. Even 'lpq' doesn't
show me the jobs once they've been sent to the server.

I'm almost to the point where I'm going to throw out cups and install
ppr for him. That can also handle feedback from printers, so tell you
about postscript errors, tell you precisely how many pages are actually
sitting on top of the printer instead of telling you your job is done
when it's still actually printing, etc.
