This is impossible in this case I think, since the way Epson printer works
better broke the specs ;-). I am very interested in _which_ printer will
fail with my new lp code...
I probably put a new flag in, that flag will allow you to choose
trust-irq=1 (this way new printers will fly). The default will be
trust-irq = 0 of course.
