Description

Issue: The current unix print dialog is insufficient for Xprint.

Xprint is able to query available printers and printer attributes including
supported paper size, supported page orientation, colors(mono, grayscape,
color), plex(simpley, duplex, tumble) and so on.
The Unix print dialog for Mozilla should be able to reflect this - for example
user enters/selects[1] printer name and Xprint API returns all requested
attributes and user can select them (basically the same as the native WindowNT
print dialog does...)...

This issue is handled with the embedding API.. the embedding app can fly its own 
dialog to handle this.  This is not something that will be done for the current 
linux dialog

Can you explain "this issue is handled with the embedding API" ? How should this
work/be implemented ?
I thought this could be done in the same place as the current config dialog for
the PostScript module (PostScript module also needs more configuration options
and the ability to determinate some values itself (like the list of available
printers (via lpstat)).
