That is kind of a misunderstanding. The CM-off switch is a PPD feature and 
would work without any additional UI button. Anyway a print UI _can_ 
render a CM-off PPD switch, if it supports arbitrary ones, like some UI's 
do, e.g. KDE, Scribus, etc.

The question is more, who will be able to implement that feature in a fast 
way for Gutenprint and CM people?

kind regards
