Chuckle, one must occasionally point out that gimp-print is now something 
like 3 years old, and that gutenprint is still being actively developed 
by the same very knowledgeable people from the same code base, only the 
name has changed.

Sugar coating may make it more palletable, but the facts ARE the facts.  
But yes, some sugar is needed in many cases where the packagers aren't 
particularly interested in quality hard copy.  Robert K. cannot demand 
they switch, but if enough users ask, it will probably happen.
