Actually, what would be really nice would be a command-line interface to
this similar to what QTCups used to be. It would then allow for *any*
non-gnome app to utilize the printing infrastructure in a sane way.

Epiphany and mozilla don't yet use it. Hopefully they'll be able to hack
it in for FC3 (I can't actually print from the rawhide epiphany right
now - I'd better go poke bugzilla and see if a bug's been filed). I
don't know how many packages are required for the new printing system
(I'm running a full rawhide system), but it would probably involve a lot
of GNOME-2.7.x and the hal/dbus stuff, which are pretty quick-moving
targets right now in rawhide. For the most part, things seem fairly
stable, but I don't know if it's worth just trying to grab that. If
you're able to run a test system, with all the brokenness that may
entail, I'd recommend installing fc3t1 on a system and grab all the
latest updates from rawhide using yum.
