+Things to be done.
+0. Fix the bugs (see BUGS-parport).
+1. Proper documentation.
+2. Overhaul lp.c:
+   a) It's a mess, and there is a lot of code duplication.
+   b) ECP support would be nice.  This can only work if both the port and
+      the printer support it.
+   c) Errors could do with being handled better.  There's no point logging a
+      message every 10 seconds when the printer is out of paper. 
+   d) Handle status readback automatically.  IEEE1284 printers can post status
+      bits when they have something to say.  We should read out and deal 
+      with (maybe just log) whatever the printer wants to tell the world.
+3. Assimilate more drivers.
