Hey Jeff,

What would this do that a screenshot wouldn't give you?  I guess you  
are thinking automation?  You can already 'Print' a patch to a .ps  
postscript document, it comes out kind of weird though.  It would  
probably be possible as a plugin, but I haven't honestly looked.   
Triggering the 'print' function programmatically wouldn't be hard.

Basically, now is the time to try ideas for plugins, because we can  
still easily change the GUI code to make it easier to do things that  
people want to do.

glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
