    Hi Michael,

    Actually scaling, centering, and cropping are all addressed
    for IPPFAX (extensions that will certainly migrate to general
    IPP/1.1 implementations).

    Cheers,
    - Ira

    PDL override is not even well-defined; what do you do with a PDF file
    that was formatted for a different media size? Scale it? Center it?
    Crop it? What constitutes an override???
