Description of problem:
This is simply an RFE for the gnome printing dialogue.  It seems to me
that this dialogue should support most, if not all, of the same
options that "lp" supports on the commandline.  Specifically, I'm
currently looking for the Stapling and HolePunch options.  They work
beautifully via "lp", so I don't imagine this is difficult to
implement.  Also, OpenOffice.org has a print dialogue which handles
these options.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
not really applicable... this is an RFE, not a bug... but if you
really want...

1.  Launch a Gnome app such as Evolution
2.  Click the print icon

Actual Results:  Stapling and Hole Punch options are nowhere to be found.

Expected Results:  Stapling and Hole Punch options should be available
for individual print jobs.

Additional info:

As a side note, it would be really nice to see a standard print
dialogue across all GNOME apps, at a minimum.  If epiphany and
OpenOffice.org both used the standard dialogue, that would be a start;
of course, the OOo setup is currently more full-featured than this
one, hence this RFE.

The plan is definitely to get openoffice and the browsers using
the libgnomeprint interface.

Filing upstream for gnome print stuff generally doesn't seem to work too good -
I think the whole area is rather underestimated. I even havn't been able to find
a active mailing list to discuss this stuff...

Is there any progress made somewhere when it comes to gnome-print and if yes,
where can it be tracked?
