Any VDI can have a printer driver, but it seems each VDI/GDOS use a
different API to create a printer driver.
Having modern printer support in MiNT requires 2 things:
(1) Porting CUPS to MiNT (should be easy, modulo the hardware support)
(2) Write a VDI driver for CUPS (hard, provided you have no doc to write
