Hi Mike,

I like your clarifications as suggested.

Are you suggesting a *tiny* document that updates JPS3 and extends
Identify-Printer?

It seems like it would be nice to handle this as a minor release update
to JPS3 (so that everyone sees it).  I know, process...process.  But this
seems like the cleaner fix to me.

Cheers,
- Ira
