More question to the japanese driver folks:

Are there any instructions/HOWTOs in english for developing a driver
based on the OpenPrinting vector interface/PDAPI? Once for writing the
driver library itself and second for writing/linking an RPC server
around the driver library?

If not, I would appreciate if this could be done soon, so that printer
manufacturers and independent driver developers have a place to look up
this info.

I also would like to know whether the OpenPrinting vector driver has a
way to cleanly cancel jobs. Is the job cleanly shut down when sending
SIGTERM to GhostScript?
