Accounting for iPrint on linux.

The company I work for write an printing accounting program. We
currently have it working with NetWare, and wish to port it to

It appears that the ncl packages do not work from Linux, I know that
Novell is planning to release their own account API in the future.

Does anybody know when this API is likely to be released, or if it's
possible to link into the spooler as you can on netware.

Many thanks for any information you may be able to give.
