There are three places that options come from: the CUPS command line,
the PPD file, and the CUPS page header.
One possible mechanism would be a CUPS option passed on the command line
(it might have to be in the PPD file also for CUPS to allow it through,
I'm not certain) telling Gutenprint to ignore any color-relevant options
in the PPD file and the CUPS page header, and only use the command line
