I've tried to use apsfilter with my new  :-)  HP Deskjet 550C.
But I couldn't.  In the log, there is a very funny error message.
So I've read the pcl3 driver's documents, and found, that HPDJ550C
doesn't support CMYK, only CMY+K mode.
But in apsfilter's DJet550c drivers, it's setup is to use CMYK.
So the fix is very simple:
in the pcl3/hpdj550c and in the old hpdj/550C driver scripts,
in the color selection code (case "$COLOR" in ... ),
we need to correct the
(and of course -sColorMode=CMY+K in the old, hpdj/550C driver) 
Install apsfilter, configure a HP DeskJet 550C (either with pcl3 driver
or the old hpdj driver) and try to print to it.

It's in the description. May I need to create a real patch ?
