I thought wine maybe can use my printer privileged as an usbdevice,
like in qemu. Afaik wine can use some usbdevices like digicams or
usb-storages with their shipped drivers.

(in qemu it works like this: rmmod usblp, start winxp at qemu, "mount" the
usb-printer to qemu -> install canondriver -> print success.)
