There is no KPrinter for KDE-4 therefore, there is no "kprinter" command 
to replace "lpr" in non-KDE apps.

Developers are saying that this must go into Qt.  This seems like an 
unrealistic idea to me.

I would like to see a KPrinter that was similar to the print manager in 
OO (at least add the features, but some people seem to dislike it (I 
can't figure out why).
