in thinking about above, i checked cups.conf and found that,
<Limit Pause-Printer Resume-Printer
<Limit Cancel-Job CUPS-Authenticate-Job>
are in 'deny,allow' order, rest are 'allow,deny' order.
so this makes me wonder why an order of 'allow,deny' would not be used
in all cases.
in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
