CUPS and gnome



I recently bought an Epson 1290 Photo printer, which has a lot of
options in CUPS. However, apart from GIMP (which is GTK2, not gnome),
gnome programs don't offer any of these options in their print dialogs.
So they have to be set externally. There are several possibilities:
1. Using system-config-printer or localhost:631, both of which require
root privileges.
2. Using lpoptions.
3. Using kprinter.

Clearly option 3 is the most user-friendly. However kprinter is a KDE
program, so it takes time to start in a gnome environment.
Are there plans to implement a gnome analog of kprinter and integrate
complete CUPS support for gnome programs?
