Right, I think it's unlikely we'd ever want to handle Word documents, if
for no other reason than the formats keep changing with each version of
Word so it's unlikely to be a candidate for embedding in a printer.

But, since we're basing on IPP, I can see a requirement to handle
Postscript, PCL, PDF in addition to straight raster formats.
