Oh boy, I can hardly wait to hit some JS spammer's site that causes my printer
to spit out 100 pages of "MY BOSS SUCKS EGGS" in 64 point type . . .

No, I don't think JS needs to access my printer, thanks.  If a user wants to
print something, she can choose "Print Frame" from the File menu, thank you
