Yes, but why did you need to test for default-printer-name to be
fboundp?  It should simply be called unconditionally, and we should
have some provision for the user to override that with printer-name.

This shouldn't be necessary.

I still think that, even for Windows, it's overhead to call
default-printer-name each time we print something.  But that's me.
