Some comments on these IPP<->LPD gateway discussions...
... I agree with Scott that the gateway between IPP and legacy
systems should *not* be the driving force behind our design.
... There seems to be a base assumption that mapping a from a
LPD job identifier (integer) to an IPP job URL is a difficult
problem. I would assert that it is not. We have a gateway
that has been in existence for four years now that solves this
exact problem: it maps from the LPD job identifiers to an opaque
printer-independent job identifier.
And folks, it wasn't that hard to do.
