The deamon does not care about printing per-se, just to handle the
interactions with LPD on the client machine.  In other words, if you
know what to do to print a text file, the daemon will be happy to feed
your command with files sent through the LPD protocol.  

To be really useful, I think the deamon should be turned into a
library.  If enough people are interested, I can open a mailing list
for discussions.
