So - in fact; having consulted internally and read a few bugzilla bugs
- I think it is perhaps quite a good fix; we have things like:
Which look scary; Johannes maintains CUPS at SUSE, and his view is that
we should be careful here; he suggested having an IMHO un-usable option
in the print dialog to select which meta-file-format (hmm).
So - (I guess) perhaps (reluctantly) turning this back to generate .PS
output is the right answer cf.
Having said that - it's clearly nice to help out with improving CUPS -
so I recommend we default to PS, unless we're in "Experimental mode"
where we use PDF instead (?).
How does that sound ? Any chance of tweaking the patch to do that Lior
- and thanks for the catch ! :-)
