    So each and every desktop client will have to install
    this "free" software. Not exactly the kind of "standard
    infrastructure support" one typically expects today.

    Interesting you should bring this up. How is this
    effort going? The last time I attended a phone
    conference on this topic (some months ago?), it
    didn't seem to get anywhere. Does anyone have an
    update on this?

    (I'd offer to do an Open Source IPP email notification
    applet/widget/whatever, but frankly, I'm up to my eyebrows
    trying to finish my IPP implementation...sometime in
    Q3 of 2007. ;-)

    Can you (or someone) give the DL a thumbnail sketch
    of the kinds of email notifications that must be
    delivered by QUALDOCS?

    I mean, are they as simple as "Job Done", or
    "Sorry, No Way". Or are they as fine-grained
    as "Now Imaging ScanLine #2438" or "Checking
    Available Toner Supply"?

    And does the IETF Internet Fax standards include
    machine-readable content or plain text?
