As I wrote before, we will not have experimental (i.e., unreliable,
unpredictable, unstable, or just untested) code in the official stable
release. That's what development versions are for, after all ;). What
goes in a stable release should be just that: stable.

However, I've committed a patch to implement a combination of Lars' and
Paul's ideas (see my other mail on that).

If others (like over at MiKTeX) choose to provide (experimental?)
printing, this is up to them, of course.
