printer-state = 'stopped', add a new reason to describe this - something
printer-state-reasons = 'stopped-by-operator'.

The Printer has a boolean attribute called "printer-is-accepting-jobs". If
the value is 'true' the Printer (and its queue have been enabled) otherwise
the value is 'false'.

We added the state 'cancelled' and the reason would be
job-state = 'cancelled', job-state-reasons = 'cancelled-by-operator'
