Which is actually what debian is doing (at least in sid). They
recently switched from the included plug-in to the one that comes
with gutenprint. I have been very disappointed to find out that
none of the user interface improvements that we have done to the
Print plug-in over the last years have been incorporated into that
version. Basically the Print dialog looks like crap now.
1) I don't remember anyone ever feeding them back to us. Mitch did
some improvements once, years ago, but no one's ever contacted us
2) We're not interested in any changes to the 4.2-based plugin at this
point; 5.0 is the wave of the future. They're different enough
that changes to one won't port very easily to the other.
3) That's what happens when nobody steps forward to maintain the
plugin and I have to do UI stuff. The best way to utilize me for
UI programming is to take whatever I do and invert it.
