The scope of this one is not yet clear to me, but there is definitely some superfluous/redundant/nonfunctional interface to remove.

A separate issue is whether the current printing paradigm itself (sending the literal pixmap from the screen to the print engine) will suffice, or whether something very different (drawing directly to a postscript print/paint engine) will have to be implemented (that could take significant time).

To get a graphical feel for this issue, print starting from a large (and then a small) display window, in both the new and old viewers. Only the window proportions will matter in the old viewer, not its size. Publication-suitable prints (esp. their labels) can usually be obtained starting from large display windows in casaviewer, but not from small ones.
