[Nautilus-list] Desktop icons representing installed printers


I have a suggestion for Nautilus:

It would be great to have desktop icons that represent printers installed on the system. If one were
to open the printer icon, they would be able to view pending jobs with
other data such as the owner, time, job ID, etc., and might have the
ability to manipulate the contents of the spool (ie. cancelling a print
job, for instance).  Maybe also place some kind of icon (like the
awards) over the printer if the paper-out signal is recieved.

Another suggestion would be to have a "Network Neighborhood" of sorts
that would allow a user to browse Samba shares and map shares to folders
on the desktop.  This would probably be a helluva lot of work though.
