[ale] cups printer admin

I want to create a login for a printeradmin in cups. This user would be
able to do nothing more than cancel all print jobs for any printer
controlled by the localhost:631 cups access process.

Cups documentation could use some work...

I have edited the cupsd.conf file to add the user to the policy section
for admin stuff (cancel-job etc).

I have added the user with lppasswd.

I've added the user with useradd.

I have set AuthType to Basic, Digest, BasicDigest, etc

Is cups just broken?

Google turns up loads of people who can't make it do what they want as
well but no pointers to solutions that I have seen...
