Fedora's default papersize setting... where?

Take a close look at the file cupshelpers.py

in system-config-printer

Letter is selected by default only for a small number of specific
locales.  What more do you want? Blood?

If you are going to argue that we should make A4 the default, even for
en_US and en_CA... locations where printers can be assumed that Letter
sized paper is what is in the trays... you and I are going to have a
serious discussion about balancing usability against idealism.

+1 Fedora should default to the ISO standard..
