Well. There are things I don't understand anymore since the discussion
Do we still want to keep postscript as the default file format for
printing? Do we want to use postscript for printing or only as a
portable print file format?
If we want to use postscript all the time. Why don't we want to enhance
ghostscript: code too messy? If gs code is too messy, why wouldn't we
want to improve it to suit our needs, considering 10 years work has been
done onto it ?

And finally, is there a page about gnome-print explaining the goals of
the project in details?
