I've mailed Tom some info on how to set it up corrcetly.

No it does nothing except send the correct initialization and reset
sequences to the printer. The idea is to say have xxx a link to
lpfilt and use :if=xxx: and lpfilt will lookup xxx in /etc/lpfiltcap
and use the indicated init and reset sequences. The 4MP is smart
enough to do the rest itself.
I posted lpfilt to usenet about a year ago - can't recall which group
I mainly use the hplp and lpwide setups.
