Today if a printer is out of paper or otherwise out of service, one gets a
"Printer is not accepting job." error.
This is not compliant with Windows native applications such as Word where
jobs are being sent to the printer queue anyway. The sysadmin will then usually
get a message and is then supposed to look after failing printers.
The RFE is to optionally make the JRE compliant with the underlying OS
in terms of printer errors. This could be achieved by setting e.g. a -D option.
