[Printing-architecture] cups-browsed: how to treat rejecting queues?

Tim, one can solve the problem, cups-browsed updates queues on changes
in the Bonjour record from the server (but not sure whether on all
changes). Rejecting jobs is encoded in the printer-type TXT field, by
the 0x80000 bit. See /usr/include/cups/cups.h, CUPS_PRINTER_REJECTING

So it should be possible to implement that the cups-browsed queue
follows the accepting bit of its remote queue.
