If you were using gimp-print and cups, it would be pretty easy I 
think.  I have 2 printers, both epson ink squirters, and 4 actual 
definitions setup, 2 for each printer in cups.  1 low res for text 
type outputs, and one hi-res for text+photo, both in color, for each 

To the Gimp, they are simply lp0, lp1, lp2, and lp3, and the 
gimp-print dialog allows you to change which printer you are using.

Cheers, Gene
