	There is no printing support for widgets - since it turns out that
mostly people don't want to print widgets, unless they want appalling
quality output.

	There is a gnome-print module / project that provides a nice
post-script type API for gnome with pluggable backends print to
PDF/Image/Postscript etc. that you might want to look at, checkout the
'gnome-print' module in CVS. Or subscribe the the mailing list linked
from somewhere.
