How does this fail?  Or, instead of "a remote print server", do you mean
to write "a chain of print servers"?

There is no good reason to point cups clients at localhost if the spool
is actually on another box.  lpoptions should specify the remote spool
as one's default printer in such cases.  And with that, both the CUPS
API and http over port 631 should give direct access to the PPD.
