printer offline remove jobs

i was wondering if someone can help me out here.
we've got 1 network laserjet online (with samba)
works all fine no worries..

but i need to find out, how to remove print jobs
when the printer is offline.

the idea is that all printjob send to this printer when offline,
get deleted, so that the buffer will be empty when you put it
(we hate the fact that when you put your printer online, he first spools all waiting documents)

we use cups as printer server.

is there a way to tell cups to remove let say a print job after 5 mins (or less/more) when not spooled.. ?

Thanx, later
