Would it not help to use StartDoc etc (or whatever they are called) and send data to the printer like in the little c program Vinicius pointed to?

It would help to do a lot of things. But apparently people only have the time to discuss those things ad nauseum, not to work on implementing them, so I have checked in a change which will improve things for the majority of people affected.

In my experience, implementing a stopgap measure inside Emacs itself could cause efforts towards a full native solution to stall. There may also be benefits to not interfacing with the printer inside Emacs, such as the case where the system API locks up, the external helper applications takes the lockup, not Emacs itself.
