	My understanding about CUPS was that while it does try to do a lot, the
bits we would use would be more oriented to printer / capability
discovery than rendering.

	Then again, I was probably smoking crack. I was under the impression
that there is some interfacing standard that CUPS implements that we
should use - but not neccessarily with their implementation, and that
someone else - perhaps HP/IBM is writing a split out / separate /
improved library to handle this protocol.

	Perhaps someone can clear the haze for me ?
