I fear the answer to this is no, but I'm going to ask anyway. Is there any way to write a script (I'm even willing to go into apple script if it will work) to set print options.

Issue: Brother MFC 8480 has fax capability on the mac. But not through a fax queue like a modem. The send a fax options are in the printer options by starting a normal print job and selecting send a fax and type in the fax number. The Print/Specify Print Options Script step does capture the settings to send a fax. but I can not find a way to specify a fax number by script unless I create a new script with a unique Print/Specify Print Options for every fax number. Any other Ideas? I looked into the lp (LP mac terminal) command but brother's driver does not make the options for faxing available there.
