Farmer, per talk today, we need to break the printing work into several steps:

#1 - Enable print-to-pdf function on Windows platforms. This is basically a follow-up from jwatt's previous implementation for macOS and Linux.

#2 - Enable PDF-to-EMF printing on Windows platforms. (doing EMF conversion on Chrome process). We expect a WIP patches attached in a bug so that we can push them to TRY and get a build to evaluate and local testing.

#3 - Run PDFium EMF conversion code on content process or isolated process in case of stability concern. Implement IPC communication betweeen chrome and content processes to complete EMF printing.

#4 - Implement a PDF test suite to verify overall implementation.
