harcopy in CLIM

    Would someone involved in the CLIM definition please comment on
    plans for providing hardcopy capabilities for CLIM?  Such as the
    ability to produce postscript output of the contents of a 
    particular CLIM pane?  To what degree have people discussed this
    issue, and when might we see hardcopy capabilities?

CLIM 1.0 has a form called WITH-OUTPUT-TO-POSTSCRIPT-STREAM that causes
output to be redirected to an output file that will contain PostScript.
This file can be printed on a PostScipt printer using whatever command
you would normally use to print such a file.  As far as I know, it works
pretty well, although it has not been tested thoroughly with color
(since we do not have a color PostScript printer here at SCRC).
