Tim, is there a new way to test the driver selection and 
automatic-download for a given device ID without needing to modify the 
code of system-config-printer and without having the appropriate printer 
physically? Or do I need to re-develop this feature?

I (and also the driver-issuing manufacturers) need this feature. Can you 
tell us (please use "Reply to all") how to proceed? Thanks.
