You said it would take a lot of code to be able to get gnome-print to
print out postscript or EPS generated by something else.  I am saying,
write glue to use ghostscript to turn them into images then use
gnome-print to render the image somehow.

I may be wrong, but I think doing what the person wanted to do is much
easier than you think.
