+ gtk2's lpr printerbackend provides a commandline useful for testing,
using uncommon options or printing to available but unconfigured
printers.
e.g. user configured printers close to his office, but needs to print
once to a printer in a different building. lpr -PFar_away_printer could
do this, but this is not available in e.g. Firefox printing dialog when
the cups printbackend is active. The cups printerbackend lacks this
functionality and the lpr backend is said to go away.
