By the way, there are new filters for the HP "Windows-Only" printers, like
720C, 710C, 820Cxi and 1000 series. The pbm2ppa converter was replaced by
pnm2ppa which supports color, etc. now. Although it isn't that stable yet,
I think it more interesting for most users than the old black-white filter,
pbm2ppa. Does anymore want to package that?

You can find pnm2ppa at http://sourceforge.net/project/?group_id=1322
