22TODO, in no particular order :
23       
24        - Improve the documentation of edpykota's --printer command
25          line option.
26         
27        - Store the value of the user's account balance in the
28          printing history (the value at the time of printing)
29          as well as in the payments history (as a safety check
30          in case an user complains).
31         
32        - Add a pkrefund command line tool & optional CGI script.
33       
34        - PJL for non-networked backends (see ML's history)
35       
36        - Make the SNMP and PJL delay and number of loops a new configuration
37          directive.
38       
39        - Add the listing of the member printers in pkprinters if the printer
40          is a printer group.
41         
42        - Allow several levels of administrative priviledges by allowing
43          files like ~pykota/pykotadmin.someusername.conf (readonly by
44          user 'someusername'), and have the database server deal
45          with the permissions : no need for additionnal code or data
46          in PyKota's database !
47       
48        - Try to talk to education based distribution coordinators
49          (SambaEdu, SkoleLinux, K12LTSP, ...) to see how to
50          better integrate PyKota with these.
51         
52        - Add most configuration directives to the database itself,
53          while still allowing to overwrite them with the configuration
54          files at run time.
55       
56        - Ink accounting ala PrintBill.
57       
58        - Price and statistics per page format.
59       
60        - Allow the admin to choose an action to take when the database
61          is unavailable (server is down or something like that), so
62          introduce two directives :
63         
64            nodb: accept|reject|hold
65            lognodb: /path/to/file/for/later/batch/update/of/database
66       
67        - CUPS accepts the "STATE: ..." message as backchannel
68          data : use this to tell CUPS what action has been taken
69          for current job. I did some testing but wasn't able to
70          make it work...
71         
72        - Documentation...
73         
74        - Learn more bits of PHP to help with phpPyKotaAdmin, which
75          is a GREAT tool !
76       
77        - Multidatabase support, e.g. store users in LDAP, quota 
78          related datas in PostgreSQL, history in text file,
79          and so on... For 2.0, probably not before.
80         
81        - Re-add support for LPRng if interest is high enough (it is
82          not for now)
83
