If I use something like


it seems that the data isn't going through pfilt at all (pfilt doesn't
get run) but sent to the remote printer as-is.  Is this a bug or a
feature?  I think it's either a bug or I'm doing something stupid.

Besides, if you have a comment in /etc/printcap ending with backslash,
it seems to confuse lpr/lprm/lpq.  This _is_ a bug, isn't it? ;)
