Ira, yes, but there would be multiple keywords per channel. In the past, we've
shied away from this (not sure why). Note that all keywords are currently
singular. There was a halfhearted debate around 12/98 on this topic w.r.t. LPD
queue names.

I'd be happy to add a keyword with multiplicity to chIPP and chHTTP for pull
print protocols.

Hi Harry,

I'm a little confused by your note. Shouldn't we just *add*
a keyword to the existing chIPP and chHTTP channel types,
to list the supported 'pull' print URI schemes?

Separately, you've reminded me that Xerox developers have
been bugging me recently to request the addition of a
new channel type for Email-to-Print. I'd tentatively
suggest that this new channel be 'chSMTPPrint'.

Cheers,
