Debugging more than anything else.  Comparing PrinterData keys
between local and remote printers.  Will also be an easy way to 
clear out old drivers (i know that DeletePrinterDriver() will work, 
but this is getting at the raw tdb).  As much as I gripe about 
the registry, i do like to dig through it sometimes :-)

Also gives an easy way to init a driver or add PrinterData
(at least it will be when I gfet through).

cheers, jerry
