	No but practical matters like budget (home not work) and the desire
for A3 printing and scanning intervened between the ideal printer spec and
the chosen purchase which was as always a compromise. OTOH it's still going
strong eight years (mostly light with short bursts of heavy use) on and it
has never done anything nasty - so it ain't broke so there's no excuse to
fix it with "ooh shiny" even if it isn't exactly a great printer.

	Indeed a networked PostScript or PCL printer is simplicity itself
to drive.
