This seems to be the case, yes. But than again, I haven't thought
it through...

Yes, I think this is a nice application. Or have a ghostscript wine
driver that would open ghostscript to all Windows printer drivers.

However, this is not a simple problem. But maybe in such cases as
these, where we have to interface through a well defined (and small)
interface, the IPC idea may be feasible.

Are you game? :)
