I've got good news and bad news...

The good news is that the gutenprint folks confirm that the backends have been 
dropped and it should work without them.

The bad news is that it still doesn't work.

I've been communicating with a couple people and I have discovered that the 
escputil utility will perform a nozzle pattern test and it will identify the 
printer, if you use the -u switch to tell escputil that the printer is newer 
than a Stylus 740.

Even with this minor success, it still won't print from Kate...
