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 ;)
