server to access the Win95 print spooler. You have to use the
job-id (DWORD value) returned by the AddJob() API call. You will
then have to maintain a mapping between this Win95-derived job-id
and the job-id/job-uri returned by a remote IPP server. We are not
proposing replacing the existing software in the world, just
supplementing it.


I think the job MIB also specifies an octet string for supplemental
job identification (is this right Tom H.?)
