Note that this is a bit of a can of worms. Sometimes the user will want 
variant pages scaled to fit, sometimes they'll want them printed on a 
different printer. That can be a nice thing to support, but it means 
splitting the job and doing capability matching among available 
printers, and I think that would probably complicate the UI too much. 
(Not helpful if the nearest A3 tray is two buildings away.)
