this doesn't work unless System.Windows.Forms is being used, it appears.

The following test:

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Printing;

public class Foo {
  public static void Main (string[] args) {
        PrintDocument doc = new PrintDocument ();

        Console.WriteLine ("controller = {0}",


	controller = System.Drawing.Printing.StandardPrintController
