I have an Epson Laser that DOES NOT have a switch, I've already thought of 
that.  The other problem is the printer is setup on a auto-switch with 
some DOS machines, in which case, if I did flip the switch, I would have
to flip it back and forth all the time.

If there is no present way of doing this, than hacking lpt.c is not really
a problem.  I already have several other patches to submit to the core
team anyways.
