Alexander,

is the Gtk+ code intented to work inside Gtk only? 
Could you make it possible, to turn the planed printing dialog into 
something generic, useable for other toolkits as well? Maybe this can be 
achieved by modularising. So toolkit specific things are separate.

A unified dialog would be a chance to bring the printing behaviour in 
sync and take the desktop as one coordinated product.
Applictions like Scribus, Inkscape, Krita, Gimp, CinePaint should all 
behave in a similiar way. A common effort between KDE, Gnome, FLTK ...
developers would be much appreciated. Each of the above applications has 
unique features, which will not be copied easily. 
Adobe's CreativeSuite is a good example, how a group of appliations can 
work close together.

regards
