Something like add a new signal and a special case in 
KstGraphFileDialogI::reqGraphFileadd, and add a new 
"immediatePrintWindowToEPS" which borrows from the print to file one, I 
assume.  The trick is inserting the new header lines into the .ps that 
kprinter makes.

One thing I don't understand: the QImage documentation says nothing about 
being able to even create an .EPS -  Hmmm - a bug in an accidental (but 
important) feature.
