I've been trying for months :)
But it seems that stock LPD does not accept filter options. You want to
install either CUPS or LPRng as your spooler.
Another solution would be an hacked foomatic-rip input filter where the
options are already set and create a different queue for each, but it is not
an ideal solution (a little bit what APSFILTER does).
If you find anything, let me know.
