*groan* it's (of course) more complicated, as Michael Sweet pointed
out to me on the CUPS list:

"As long as you are using the CUPS or Adobe drivers for your queues
 (and not the vendor drivers for a non-PS printer), that line is
 unnecessary and will only cause raw PostScript to be printed on
 non-PS printers."

So it turns out *not* to be the case that all Windows-submitted jobs
are necessarily already rasterized.

This just seems like samba should be handling it and setting 'raw'
when necessary (and only then).
