Me too. That gives me an idea, that would be nice to have in any
advanced printing system: You should be able to preview any job
already in the queue.

So I would be able to suspend printing[1], send dvi, plaintext,
etc. stuff to the printing system, view the converted PS of the jobs
with ghostview, delete and redo any jobs I am not satisfied with, and
finally unsuspend when all went well.

[1]  Actually, I'd like to be able for a user to say: all jobs from me
     henceforth should by default be suspended - suspending the whole
     queue is only a crotch.
