Gnome2::Print - Buffer printing

Hi all,

I've just committed to CVS this example program that reads a (lined)
buffer, renders it, wrapping lines wider than the page width.  It's just
an example, so it has some rought edges, and it is indeed a little too
much verbose, but should be enough to understand how to manipulate a

In C would have been more precise, since we could iterate over
characters via pointers, getting a more reliable calculation of every
word width; in Perl, however, the code is far more readable and simpler
to understand... I know, it sounds strange to say that of some Perl code
snippet, but whoever tried to understand how libgnomeprint works reading
gtksourceview source code knows what I mean.

Oh, well: you win some, you lose some. ;-)

+++ will be included in the next revision of Gnome2::Print
(0.60), which is ready to be rolled out.
