Anybody tried gimp-print-4.2.7-1 in development yet?

gimp-print-4.2.7 should contain drivers for the Epson Stylus Photo R200/R300
printers, judging by the following text:

     The Epson Stylus Photo R200/R210 and R300/R310 printers, and the
     RX500 and RX600 multi-function devices, are now supported.  These
     printers have been properly tuned and are fully functional
     (except for direct printing to CD's).

However after installing gimp-print-4.2.7-1, gimp-print-utils-4.2.7-1,
gimp-print-plugin-4.2.7-1, gimp-print-cups-4.2.7-1 under Fedora Core 2
with all the latest updates I cannot configure my Epson Stylus Photo R200
with 'system-config-printer' as a 'locally-connected' printer (/dev/usb/lp0).

The printer is not listed among the Epson printers.

There does seem to be some sort of PPD file available judging by

Am I misunderstanding things completely or is gimp-print-4.2.7-1.i386.rpm
not yet completely kosher.
