   And you are thinking ONLY in the terms of big IT department.

No, I'm pointing out something that you're ignoring.  It's just as
valid for home users.  I can't very easily print a full page on either
of my printers (an EX and an 870) because my root (i. e. /var/tmp) is
too small -- only about 200 MB free.

   The right way takes into account both. But desktop people need up-to-art
   printing NOW, or the World Domination will be stalled ;)

Fine.  So help our team write the CUPS driver and PPD files, and
package up the Ghostscript driver, write a cool printer admin tool for
the home desktop, and we can more quickly hold up our side.
