Extend CUPS banner format (application/vnd.cups-banner) to allow background/foreground PDF template #5460
It consists of lines with initial keywords Header, Footer, Show, Notice and Image with additional values or variables to describe elements which should appear on the printed banner page.
I as well as at least some other users would like to extend that format by at least one keyword: Background, which should indicate a "template" PDF to be used as the background for the complete page, onto which the other elements of the banner would then be "stamped"...
If it is not too much of an effort the same could be done for keyword Foreground (which would point to a foreground PDF that would be overlayed on top of the other content).
This functions should be similar to what the command line tool
(Of course, the various x-bannertopdf filters, CUPS' own as well as third-party ones, also need to be extended so they understand this new keyword [or simply ignore it if they don't know what it means]).
