Nifty.  I tried to make-go it, but I got:

walters@space-ghost> ./foomatic-gui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./foomatic-gui", line 23, in ?
    import gtk.glade, gobject, gnome, bonobo.ui, gnome.ui, pango
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gtk-2.0/bonobo/__init__.py", line 5, in ?
    import activation
ImportError: No module named activation

I suspected that the activation module was in the bonobo-python package,
but bonobo-python seems to be for GNOME 1, since apt says:

root@space-ghost> apt-get install bonobo-python

BTW, would it make sense to have this be part of the GNOME System Tools?
