    flexible HylaFAX typerules framework used by sendfax
    * Improved JPEG/JBIG support for Class1 and Class2
    * faxq AuditHook for hooking into all faxq events
    * STATUSCODE job paramater to complement the STATE and STATUS parameters
    to allow clients to give customized descriptive messages about the

    option changes
