do you want a driver for the emulation modes (to be more generic), or
do you want to add a native Panasonic mode?

No.  I suggest to use the lj4 driver as a template.  Within the
printer driver, all you have to support basically is switching to a
built-in font and selecting a glyph; this is done by the the
`set_char' member function.  Almost everything else is optional.

The very question is how to generate the groff font files for your
device.  Maybe Panasonic provides metrics files which you can convert
with a script into groff's format?


PS: If you are willing to assign the copyright of you driver to the
    FSF, I would be glad to add your driver to groff.
