The SAMBA guide seems to recommend uncommenting the mime.convs line,
but 'cups options = raw' seems to me like the real solution.  One
reason for leaving mime.convs as it is was given to me by Johannes

"Any unknown MIME type would fall back to application/octet-stream and
would be sent in raw mode to the destination."
