Hi Simon,
	The gnomesword is version gnomesword2-2.0.0. I suppose gnome-print
could be a hold over they haven't gotten rid of yet. I don't have enough
experience dealing with it to know how fast the code base changes on
that project. I also didn't look at the dates when I pulled it down.
Hmm, just went to get the dates and it looks like version 2.1.10 was
just released on 09Dec2006. It looks like they are moving forward. Maybe
I should go pull that version down if for no other reason than to see if
they still use gnome-print. :-) Thanks for asking. I wouldn't have
bothered looking if you hadn't. :-)
