But the difference in alpha and beta lies not in the willingness of the 
developer to delve in and do work, does it?

What I've been trying to explain, and I feel you are not getting, is that 
when kdeprint moves from having 1 input format to having 2 (since Qt4) 
that requires a lot of rethinking and work all over the codebase. And I 
see that has not been done and that one dialog shows this very clearly.
Your answer that this is just a bug seems to miss the point I'm trying to 
Bottom line; if fixing this problem requires certain rewrites and breaking 
of stability and possibly the breaking of the API, that to me is a module 
that is alpha quality.

That you say this makes me a bit sad; I'm not using this thread to push a 
bug I struggle with.
