I do not want to be rude and I know that is not polite to answer a
question with other questions but anyway, forgive my curiosity please,
some questions pops up in my mind: 

* why ask for support of a commercial product here?
* Are we in any way connected with this proprietary software?
* Should we?
* Why should we support any proprietary software for free
  (as in beer) when they gain the real money?
* did you ask for support to the proprietary software first?
* if you asked for support first did they answer you and what?

I understand that all started with buying that printer and because of
that you are now involvend involuntary in all this driver mess but I
really think that:

* IMHO creating some "driver" that needs some software support installed on
  all graphics softwares is all but a great idea
* you really should contact the printer and/or the driver software
  authors for this kind of support and specifically ask for GIMP support
  since I doubt that that kind of support comes from the various graphic
  software authors

this is my not very humble opinion and it is _not_ connected with any
GIMP devs opinion and sorry if I seem to be rude anyway but this was
not my intention. I hope you are understanding my points.
