Bug#411637: dpkg-reconfigure enscript should allow to set papersize

Package: enscript
Version: 1.6.4-11
Severity: wishlist
Tags: l10n

enscript currently defaults to A4 size paper regardless of locale.  It would be nice if there were a way (possibly via 
"dpkg-reconfigure") to set it to whatever the local standard is ("Letter" in the US, for example).

This is already possible for the libpaper1 package, which enscript depends on.  Maybe enscript could consult 
/etc/papersize as configured by libpaper1 to get its paper size.
