Hi Marcus,

Neat. But note that this method only writes raw printer data. My
understanding is that, in practice, modern printers require specially
formatted data such as PCL or at least PostScript. So it is possible
that this change may never actually reach trunk. But I have placed
your patch in the patches directory and added it to the TODO along
with your Adobe link.
