Fair enough.

I'm going to spend tomorrow looking through the kdeprint internals to 
try and get to grips with the workflow in there.  And maybe the next 
couple of days as well :-P.  I'd still like to inherit QPrinter if we 
can (and I think we can).

Hopefully John and I (with much prodding of other developers, I suspect) 
can get a stable, kind-of-working interface by next Monday, which gives 
us 2 and a half weeks to sort out the wrinkles.  Or maybe that's 
optimistic.  We'll see.


PS: since no-one seems to be using #kde-brainstorming, I think I might 
commandeer that channel for the kdeprint work.  Seems appropriate at 
this point.  I'll be hanging around on it when I'm at my computer.
