[Mono-docs-list] print support for monodoc

So here's where I stand right now... 

I've created a simple implementation using a IPrintManager interface and
I'm currently working on a GnomePrintManager class that is intended to
allow printing on linux/gnome. 

I painfully learned what you just pointed out (that gecko-sharp
currently does not support printing)  and I'm currently pursuing a
solution using GtkHtml.Print()/gnome-sharp... I'm running into problems
but it should work once I figure it out why it is not printing :-)

If this works, it would mean that the HTML printed out could potentially
look different that what the user is seeing (if monodoc is using the
gecko engine), but I personally don't think it is a big deal. My other
option is to look into the Mozilla API and try to P/invoke something,
I'm not totally opposed to this but I have not been able to find any
good source of info on the gecko API. 

I welcome any suggestions,
