I suppose they make it possible to upgrade everything to unstable, but it
would have been nice to have the option to get new stuff incorporated into
a `bo' release.

I got the Stylus Color 800 to work with gs-aladdin_4.03-7.deb
I picked some Epson printer from the magicfilterconfig list of printers,
and edited its /usr/sbin/epson9c-filter file for PostScript:
0 %! filter /usr/bin/gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -r720x720 -sDEVICE=stcolor -sOutputFile=- stcolor.ps -
0 \004%! filter /usr/bin/gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -r720x720 -sDEVICE=stcolor -sOutputFile=- stcolor.ps -
