Unfortunately, that isn't really an acceptable solution for high-quality,
high-resolution printouts (Like maps).  Imagine the pixelization of taking
a small screenshot and simply scaling it to a large sheet of paper (ie One
size of your desk).  When you have to print this kind of stuff, you can't
simply use the pixels on the screen - You have to re-render the data (Which
is why I had hoped that the internals of GDK could be rerouted to some form
of Postscript output).
Oh well, looks like we'll have to make do with what we're doing (for now?)
