I'm running 1.3.99 with the old printer driver as well. The new one seems
to work but I happen to need my printer fully functional. Changing the
print support during the code freeze comes in the category of "not smart".
Can we save it until 2.1 unless there is some real reason and common
species of broken printer that we have to fix for ?
