I still use a2ps occasionally, but rarely for printing out
source code. I occasionally print out hex dumps that I need to
markup to figure out what's going on.

And guess what? After a while, files get renamed and nobody
remembers to change the comments.
If people really want a filename in the top of the file, they
should at least use something like a CVS or SVN variable so
that it's generated automagically and can't be wrong.
