I think  there should be a central repository of printer destination
names and the command line needed to send a printout to the printer.

for example

Stockroom-Printer: lp -Pstock %f
Fax-System: quick_fax --enclosure %f
SVR4-printer: rsh nanook lp -d icechip -f 1_ply -T PS -onobanner

Please don't invoke lp or lpr directly or expect the poor user
to type in a command line.
