Well, I just got agreement from Crandall that I can replace entire
property declarations in the CIM_Printer CR at least.  This will reduce
the editing from 100 blocks to a mere 30.  A snap.

Hi Rick,

My cut-and-paste error -

I agree totally that we do NOT want to use mofpretty when changing
existing classes - it would cause an 80% change rate in OutputTray.

Therefore, when I changed 'output tray' to 'PrintOutputTray' I tried to
stay within existing lines (as long as they didn't go past 79 columns).

Cheers,
- Ira
