;; #### should be named print-buffer, but that's currently in
;; lpr-buffer with some horrible definition: print-buffer == "print with
;; headings", lpr-buffer == "print without headings", and the headings are
;; generated by calling the external program "pr"!  This is major stone-age
;; here!
;;
;; I propose junking that package entirely and creating a unified,
;; modern API here that will work well with modern GUI's on top of it,
;; and with various different actual implementations (e.g. lpr or the
;; pretty-print package on Unix, built-in msprinter support on
;; Windows), where the workings of a particular implementation is
;; hidden from the user and there is a consistent set of options to
;; control how to print, which works across all implementations.
;;
;; The code here is just a start and needs a huge amount of work.  Probably
;; the interfaces below will change and the functions renamed.

This can be:
- nil.  Header is not printed.
- An fbound symbol or lambda expression.  The function is called with
   one parameter, a print-context object, every time the headers need
   to be set up.  It can use the function `print-context-property' to
   query the properties of this object.  The return value is treated as
     if it was literally specified: i.e. it will be reprocessed.
- A list of up to three elements, for left, center and right portions
   of the header.  Each of these can be
   - nil, not to print the portion
   - A string, which will be printed literally.
   - A predefined symbol, on of the following:
     short-file-name  File name only, no path
     long-file-name   File name with its path
     buffer-name      Buffer name
     date             Date current when printing started
     time             Time current when printing started
     page             Current printout page number, 1-based
     user-id          User logon id
     user-name        User full name
   - A cons of an extent and any of the items given here.  The item will
     be displayed using the extent's face, begin-glyph and end-glyph
     properties.
   - A list, each element of which is any of the items given here.
     Each element of the list is rendered in sequence.  For example,
     '(\"Page \" page) is rendered as \"Page 5\" on the fifth page.
   - An fbound symbol or lambda expression, called with one parameter,
     a print-context object, as above.  The return value is treated as
     if it was literally specified: i.e. it will be reprocessed."
