There is a plan, yes, and it involves, to some extent, a mechanism 
comparable to our driver model in MWF, yes. However, our focus is on MWF 
controls right now, we're planning working on S.D.P and MWF printing once 
the rest of MWF is ready.

We're gonna be using the Cairo postscript driver to output to cups on Linux, 
(postscript output should also work for the Mac). But this requires a) the 
cairo API to settle down and b) moving all of gdiplus to the 1.0 cairo API. 
Cairo is still too much in flux (even though they're getting closer), so 
we're holding off moving libgdiplus just yet.

Is there any plan to implement System.Drawing.Printing namespace?
Can it be implemented using a driver model as in MWF? For example, we can
use cups on Linux, Win32 API on Windows, some other printing mechanism on
Mac OS X, etc...

Linux is like wighwam, no windows no gates and apache inside...
