Print to file (PDF) is available by default and should be in the list.
" work" means
- creates a file that, when opened with the default PDF reader and in
Firefox using its built-in PDF support, is reasonably similar to
the preview shown on the GNOME print preview display.
As for a real printer, I suggest limiting it to an IPP Everywhere printer
(any make and model), also known as driverless printing.
Otherwise you can quickly get stuck in the mud.
So I'd suggest that this criteria
essentially means "We block if it is *known* to fail".
