Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Original remote printing feature ticket: #598, wiki: wiki/Printing.

As per r14232, we only allow a limited set of printing options from the server.
We should instead tell the server which options are available on this printer and expose it somehow to the print dialog shown there.
At the very least we should handle "copies".
Then when we get a print request, we can honour those settings we know the printer can handle, and validate the values against the list of valid options the printer exposes.

ie for a "Canon iP2700" printer, cups shows:
