Actually I looked a bit further down the page and found packages for 
specific printers which provide more useful information.  Those .dmgs 
contain Some_Location.app/Contents/Resources/script, which shows the ip 
addresses of the printers.  The ones that work just seem to be standard 
LPR printers, as is the case in the page Brian linked to.  So this is 
definitely possible, it just involves extracting all those ip addresses.
