Hi Tom (and Orson)

This is really a good news. When printing boards with Pcbnew:
- On Linux, the wxDC used in printing is really broken on GTK3 (this is
not really a news: I never see printing on Linux working well)
- But on Windows, postscript drivers (including PDF drivers) are also
broken: tracks are printed with a small thickness (thickness=0 ?)
- I do not know what happens on OSX.

Perhaps the new printing engine will fix these issues on Windows (in Pcbnew)
