One of the things we talk about in the requirements 
document is that a means is needed to create a local
instance of the printer.  In the PC world, that means a
logical printer is created on the desktop and a driver is
installed.  We have spent a lot of time talking about
the protocol but I haven't seen any significant work in
defining


- how printer instances are created
- how printer drivers for a specific printer are found
- how the drivers and supporting files are downloaded
- how these drivers and files are installed
- etc.


Is this something we need to put in the "scenarios 
document" Carl-Uno mentioned during Wednesday's conference
call?  


Probably a good topic for dinner discussion.
