The print-to-PDF facility added by CUPS is also popular with my 
customers. One was happy enough with it to put off buying 28 copies of 
Adobe Distiller. Choice of AUD$580+GST per head (== $16,240), or 
AUD$7379 for a 100-user licence. Perhaps I should talk them into 
donating 10% of that value to Samba?

Cheers; Leon
