As I see it, there are 2 things wrong with eggcups:

1) Despite what you may think or say, people _DO_ want to see other
   peoples jobs. It is extremely relevant when you have a shared printer
   at work or at college where queues can mean you have to wait 2 hours
   to get your print job.
2) dbus patched cups -> not going to happen any time soon in distro's I
   think. People may be very reluctant to do this.

So, as I see it, this is not an acceptable solution.
