Action[] getActions +1
save(OutputStream) +1

but I like some internal (protected?) means whereby the implementer has to
do no explicit coding atall to get preview/print/save functionality: hence
the getSaveAction Action which brings up a JFileChooser: but as the API also
allows itself to be used for direct printing without previewing, I can't
assume that the preview panel is up so I need to ask for a JFileChooser
parent component to enable it to be sensible & modal.
