[desktop] foomatic-gui is born
After about 10 hours of me pulling my hair out due to the complete and
utter lack of documentation for GNOME2 and its Python bindings, I have
produced "foomatic-gui". It does some rudimentary autodetection
(click on "Add", make sure you have parport_pc or the kernel USB
printer driver loaded, choose the interface, click "Forward" a lot).

(probably not permanent).
Probable future features/TODO:
- Packaging as a .deb
- Use GtkHTML (or whatever it's called) to render add foomatic
database info for printers and drivers in the druid.
- Better error handling
- i18n; the code is marked, it just needs to actually have the po
stuff run on it.
- Managing instances for CUPS
- A proper test page (instead of swiping the one from CUPS)
There's nothing inherently Debian-specific about it, although the
detect.py module is probably a bit Linux-centric.
