cluster-cups-config should spool directly to Pharos printers

Description

The Pharos release team desires all cluster workstations to spool directly to the Pharos printer. This requires a couple of things:

  • cluster-cups-config needs to be edited to include the Pharos queue, and remove the existing queues that are becoming Pharos
  • testing to ensure that the wrappers DTRT
  • does the Pharos queue accept PDF? If not, we'll need to discourage people from using "Print to LPR" with GTK+ apps.

Pharos is here, but CUPS still sucks. I have added the mitprint queue in r24975. I'm not at all sure about PCL vs PS, or the "Type" setting (because the CUPS manpages are useless, and I don't have time to read the source right now).

I... have no idea how the wrappers are going to work with this.

This is but one stage in the transition, we're also going to pull the CUPS queues once the Pharos ones are in there and working (i.e. you don't get to print to "python" anymore).

Moving to dev for testing. This should NOT get moved to proposed without explicit approval from me or othomas.
