Well, on my LJ 4MP I'm using the following printcap (printer is hooked to
amiga parallel port):

lp|ps|lj4|PostScript printer:\

This relies on only ascii-text being sent to the printer (postscript bitmaps
are ok), so you'd have to conditionalize the filter for real 8bit data in
PCL graphics mode. Don't need that though, so I don't care ;-)
