I'd be glad to, but it will have to wait until after Interop - I
don't want to attempt a hasty answer and don't have time for more
than that. (If anyone on the list will be at Interop, stop by and
say hello at booth #4206 - it would be good to have faces to go with
the names :-)

I'm afraid there is no easy answer to this one. There has been some
(small) discussion of this on the http-wg list, and there just isn't
a way to do it in the current protocol at the HTTP layer. If IPP is
layered _above_ HTTP, then there may well be an answer; as I
understand the current thinking there would be a status URL
associated with any job, so a client who say an early close on the
file transmission could GET the status URL.
