RFE: Add option in print dialog to disable (printing) stylesheets.

It may be nice to have a checkbox (or radio button group) to disable the use of
printing stylesheets (and/or the use of stylesheets in general) when printing.

Two usage scenarios:
- Printing stylesheets may be wrong (or Mozilla does not interpret them
correctly/completely =:-)
- Half-cooked stylesheets which break printing/pagination

ToDo list:
- Add boolean or enum to |nsIPrintSettings|
- Adjust XUL print dialog to set/get the value
- Adjust print engine to honor the new property in |nsIPrintSettings|
I seem to recall something like this already being filed.... but I could be wrong.

HTML demonstration page that can not be printed

This is a HTML page that can not be printed because of the print media
stylesheet.

Actually, I think this should not be a RFE but rather a BUG.
Workaround:

Install Web Developer Extension: http://chrispederick.com/work/webdeveloper/

In the Web Developer Toolbar click

"CSS -> Disable Styles -> Print Styles"

and voila, you can print the page now.
