well, it turns out I am 100% wrong --- the (old,
low-end printer) software I downloaded and use
_is_ just a wrapper, as Paul postulated.
I can't quite reproduce how I came to last night's
wrong conclusion (can I blame the wine? great!
(so was the wine (hey, this is France!))), but
suspect it was something as stup^H^H^Hilly as
just looking at thw source part of the package,
and hence only seeing source .... ;-\
anyways, yes, the EPKowa stuff (and the Epson
printer) works Ok, but it is an Open Source
“wrapper‟, not fully Open ....
