No, the reason is that there is no way to generate anything meaningful to
send to the printer. Even sending PostScript requires a little tweeking
so unless you're just sending raw data that's already processed there's
no point in creating an API for printing. If someone knows how to hack
into the AWT to generate PostScript, PLC, or whatever please let me know.
