Shouldn't it use /etc/papersize to determine the paper size?

Incidentally, the last time I checked (not recently) I noticed a
lot of programs which ignored /etc/papersize and defaulted it
internally, some to letter size and some to a4 size.  I
just thought I'd mention that in hopes that any guilty
maqintainers would notice it.  When I get my system somewhere
near current, I'll start reporting bugs against packages which
I notice doing this.
