It's really not so wasteful providing hard disk space for print spooling,
since many network printers have upwards of 40 MB of memory on board, e.g.
my Okidata OL-1200. With lots of print jobs, it can schedule
reloads/changes of the cartridges, etc. What's more, lots of single pages
require more than 1 MB of description, and that doesn't even address

Besides, if a kid needs 512 MB of RAM just to play his video games, why
shouldn't a print server have a couple of hundred megs of hard disk space,
otherwise too small to be of consequence?
