Well, right now we wrap QPrinter in KPrinter; the big issue is that we have to 
add wrappers for all new methods, instead of getting them automatically 
through inheritance. That, and my attempt at wrapping the new methods to 
enable our pre and post processing hooks (if that's the right word) failed 
miserably, leading to crashes when trying to print.
