Well, my first and foremost goal is to add a function that allows to print 
images that just fills up the paper (with a margin that could preferably be 
set inside the wizard) and to add zooming to the existing cropping utility.

Having had a look at the code for getting the layouts, I'd say that specifying 
layouts in some XML format wouldn't be a bad idea.

Looking at the wizard in general, I think it needs a complete relayout, I find 
that the pages are overcrowded, and that it should integrate better with the 
KDE printing framework, for example to get a list of possible paper sizes for 
a printer. Then this is really a development discussion, so maybe it would 
fit better in the development mailing list for a start ;)
