This is not possible. kdeprint is gone and we have (crappy) basic Qt
printing system in its place.
there's a huge step back... are they planning to have a new kdeprint
like application in kde4?

I'd think that supplying a new on can't be such a big deal, at least if the Qt printing system allows something like directly pushing postscript to the backend.

but it looks like it isn't planned, at least they didn't feel the urge to put this in the first releases?
