Removing all non iprint printers

Does anyone know a trick to remove all non iprint printers ?
We recently switched over to using only iprint but people still have the old
que based printers installed, which dont exist anymore on the server.
I tried setting 'only allow these printers' in the ICM but that only removes
iprinters which arnt on the list, not the old que printers.

You could use the migrate feature of the client (add in iprint printer in
place of the the queue and then remove it). It is turned on in the
iprint.ini and iManager will let you assign the new printer taking its
place.
