Re: Yelp patches


I know libgnomeprint* is going away, but the way the patch is
structured, it should be (relatively) easy to rip out support for it and
put in gtk printing support (i.e. only 1 short file needs rewritten).

I figured it was better to get printing support in now and then have to
change it later than to let this patch sit and rot until gtk 2.10 is
ready and then try fixing it up again.  Plus, printing is one of the top
requests in Yelp.
