22TODO, in no particular order :
23       
24        - Allow the disabling of an user print quota entry without
25          deleting it.
26       
27        - Improve the documentation of edpykota's --printer command
28          line option.
29         
30        - Store the value of the user's account balance in the
31          printing history (the value at the time of printing)
32          as well as in the payments history (as a safety check
33          in case an user complains).
34         
35        - Add a pkrefund command line tool & optional CGI script.
36       
37        - PJL for non-networked backends (see ML's history)
38       
39        - Make the SNMP and PJL delay and number of loops a new configuration
40          directive.
41       
42        - Add the listing of the member printers in pkprinters if the printer
43          is a printer group.
44         
45        - Allow several levels of administrative priviledges by allowing
46          files like ~pykota/pykotadmin.someusername.conf (readonly by
47          user 'someusername'), and have the database server deal
48          with the permissions : no need for additionnal code or data
49          in PyKota's database !
50       
51        - Try to talk to education based distribution coordinators
52          (SambaEdu, SkoleLinux, K12LTSP, ...) to see how to
53          better integrate PyKota with these.
54         
55        - Add most configuration directives to the database itself,
56          while still allowing to overwrite them with the configuration
57          files at run time.
58       
59        - Ink accounting ala PrintBill.
60       
61        - Price and statistics per page format.
62       
63        - Allow the admin to choose an action to take when the database
64          is unavailable (server is down or something like that), so
65          introduce two directives :
66         
67            nodb: accept|reject|hold
68            lognodb: /path/to/file/for/later/batch/update/of/database
69       
70        - CUPS accepts the "STATE: ..." message as backchannel
71          data : use this to tell CUPS what action has been taken
72          for current job. I did some testing but wasn't able to
73          make it work...
74         
75        - Documentation...
76         
77        - Learn more bits of PHP to help with phpPyKotaAdmin, which
78          is a GREAT tool !
79       
80        - Multidatabase support, e.g. store users in LDAP, quota 
81          related datas in PostgreSQL, history in text file,
82          and so on... For 2.0, probably not before.
83         
84        - Re-add support for LPRng if interest is high enough (it is
85          not for now)
86
