As much as possible "borderless", yes. Of course the printer will
still apply some small margin, but that's ok. A margin of say <0.5 cm.
is fine. So it's not a printer thing, I accept the (physical)
limitations of the printer, but I want to avoid any extra margins due
to software settings. So I need the create a pdf without/less as
possible margins, and then I need Acrobat Reader to (silently) print
it without any/less as possible extra margins added. I believe the
first step is possible, but I am wondering if the second step is
possible as well, i.e. can I adjust the options normally appearing in
the Printing Dialog through Python?
