What's missing, I think, is any way of storing persistent data 
server-side on a per-user basis.  The cups filters have access to the 
name of a job's "owner", yes?  So as far as I can see, fetching a user's 
overrides (for those parameters which are out-of-band as far as the 
Common Printing Dialog is concerned) would be easy enough if there were 
anywhere suitable to store them.

Yup, absolutely.

All the best,
