Well, it's not too bad, really.  It's mostly gets its information from
the existing print system.  IIRC, you just have to set up an environment
variable to tell mozilla what servers to use, and maybe edit a config
file to tell the print system to default to letter paper if you're in
the US (although it may already detect that automatically).  But look
through the docs to make sure.

Yeah, I wish everything just spoke CUPS.
