This only covers KDE applications then.

It looses the feature to "print to pdf" for nearly *any* other file type
(text, images, PS) when loaded into the standalone kprinter dialog, as it
is supported now when you selected "Convert" in the dialog that comes up
by printing non-PS files (well, maybe the feature was lost through the
bitrotting process in recent 12-18 months, but it used to work fairly well).

I'm not complaining -- just want to make sure you're aware what gets lost
by the current changes.
