I've explored the pycups api well, and I found out that
with minimal effort I can create print queues, and do
printer sharing + wifi printing. (The fallback strategy)
putting all this within an extension is not really perceivable
Having a print activity ensures that we have a much
flexible way to implement everything in the no xs case.

I will have to explore these options myself, but of course within a
course would definitely make me worry less about the greater
integration between the group, user and teacher.
by integration I mean, the whole having teacher evaluate and such.

Thanks Martin! and np! I'm very happy that we could have the discussion
