bug#2250: 23.0.90; Ask the user before printing (sending to printer)

  I propose to have a new variable, confirm-print, set to t by default, which 
if non-nil displays a confirmation message to the user just before a 
file/region/buffer is going to be printed to a local or remote printer.

  This is needed because users may print things by mistake while they are 
testing functions. I did it at least two times:
- I mistyped a key shortcut in some mode and issued another one which just... 
printed without asking
- M-x ps-print-buffer RET, thinking that it would export to a .ps file. Ouch! 
Only if you used a prefix. My org-mode agenda appeared in a printer in another 

  The confirmation message can, in addition to asking „Send document to 
printer? yes/no“, say the name of the printer which will be used: „Send 
document to printer oki_B6300? yes/no“.
