[maemo-users] (bluetooth?) printing

I need to print documents from Nokia N800 using Bluetooth 
or USB connection (from my own application or using any 
existing tool). Looked maemo.org through but couldn't find 
any application that could print. I also checked out the 
mailing lists archive but could only find printing in a 
wishlist of 2006. Did anything change?
As far as I know, printing in Linux is performed via CUPS. 
I found that there is bluez-cups v. 3.7osso11 and 
blueztools - could I try writing an application to print 
to printers via Bluetooth using this lib? Is there any 
example of such an application?
I actually plan to port my .Net Compact Framework 
application using Mono. On a Windows Mobile device I used 
a library that performed low-level data transmission for 
several printer models, e.g. for all HP printer supporting 
PCL. Maybe there is some low-level driver for such 
printers for Linux too?
