I understand the desire to remove a library deprecated upstream, but unless
it's evolved a lot since I last looked, the internal printing code isn't nearly
as nice.

Do you have an approximate timeline for the removal of libgnomeprint?

Note that 2.9.x is a development series, so probably unsuitable for packaging
(until it's declared stable of course).
