Printing in general should be fairly easy: you open a special sort of 
graphport and render in that. When someone tells me which calls are needed (or 
which interfaces should be bgenned) I should be able to implement that quickly.

Postscript printing (i.e. from postscrip source, not through quickdraw calls) 
is a different story, however, it uses some tricks if I remember correctly but 
I don't know exactly which ones. So, I'll definitely need a bit of help before 
I can implement this...
