One missing point:

KPrintDialogPage does not now anything about windows printer, so people 
may think that using QPrintDialog would help.
This helps to be able to select windows printers and all the other stuff 
like page selecting, page format and so on, but does not support 
application specific printer dialog extending (like umbrello does for 
diagram selecting) because QPrintDialog on win32 uses the native 
Printing Dialog  (PRINTDLG Api function).
