Don't know.  The only other qt5 application I have at the moment is
'vlc' which has no printing subsystem at all.  The only other one I'd
be interested in is 'wireshark'.  I'm building it now and will see what

Just for grins, I turned on the 'gtk3' option to 'qt5-qtbase' (which I
think is strange--I thought they were competing GUI toolkits).  It built,
but failed packaging due to a bunch of files it couldn't find.
