Description of problem:
The stock foomatic claims that passing the "docs" option on the command
line will yield the various print options (like say Duplex=on) that can be
used to control print jobs.  The version adapted by Redhat does not appear
to use this mechanism and no alternate is documented.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.lpr -Z docs /etc/hosts

Actual Results:  observe the output - alas it actually printed /etc/hosts!

Expected Results:  it should have printed a list of options - or rather
(given I'm submiting to the documentation end) an alternate mechanism
should be documented to acheive the same thing since the options available
at print time are not documented elsewhere

This is functionality was not implemented in Red Hat Linux 7.2 and therefore was
not documented. I am passing this bug on to the appropriate pagkage. From there
it will be added to bugzilla as a feature request.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Handling -Z options should work now in the rawhide packages (in particular
