I guess I've been infected by STREAMS; the solution that instantly
occurred to me (well, the second solution, anyway) was "gee, if lpt
were a STREAMS driver, you could push on an arbitrary line-printer
translation module to suit a given printer (using a loadable kernel
module, at that)...".  Actually, the first solution that occurred to
me was "you mean the line printer driver doesn't live underneath
the serial protocol handler?", which of course already knows about
translating LF to CRLF and innumerable other perversions...
