Support authentication for SMB/other queues

Currently, to send jobs to an SMB print queue that requires authentication the user's credentials must be encoded in clear text in the URL for the printer as configured in CUPS I.e.:
Without this, CUPS reports the error "Session setup failed: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL" for all jobs.
This is clearly quite suboptimal. It would be great if cups-pk-helper would prompt the user for credentials when needed, per OS X.
