As for Luc's module, some years ago I worked in a company who had 
developped *many* "drivers" for their own accounting application to 
make it work under MSDOS identically with most existing printers at 
that time. The big problem was "incompatiblities" between printers 
which were said to be ESCP/2 or PCL compliant, but which results 
differed slightly, and they really had done a very good job to 
mitigate this problem. 

This company would have probably paid thousands of dollars for Luc's 
module (with also PCL support), too bad they don't distribute their 
own accounting application anymore... and too bad this work is lost.
