If HPIJS doesn't autodetect photo paper, you may not be able to print
decent photos.  It may be that HPIJS detects the change, but doesn't
tell CUPS about it.

You have me curious enough that I think getting our HP 4xxx (whatever
it is) working with FreeBSD will be a project for this weekend.  The
pinhole camera can wait another week, I guess.  If I learn anything
useful, I'll let you know.
