Yes, I really should have noted that Matthew.  But a far far better 
question is: "Why the hell isn't it in core?"  Is there some stupid, 
assinine even, reason to quasi-isolate it so from the users who need it 
most?

I gave up on 4.2.6 & 7 very shortly after I'd installed FC2 when FC2 was 
fresh, and installed the then alpha version of gutenprint and suddenly 
started getting output I could put on good paper and sell, from an Epson 
C-82.  Its still sitting about 2 feet away, and still producing excellent 
prints after probably 75 reams of paper and a thousand dollars worth of 
ink over the years.  Puhleaze, quit wasting peoples time, patience, and 
money with nearly 3 year old drivers for gimp hardcopy.
