And my argument with Leonard was all over the idea that Brother's
support could be considered that great, when they recommend hazardous

I just don't want to see vendors doing this as a matter of course,
because it makes users who know no better think that it's safe to use
the force options whenever they have a problem.
Course, if Brother really wanted to offer good linux support, the raster
to BRscript binary source should be released under an appropriate
license. For example, BSD..
Why hardware makers don't release a BSD style reference driver for *all*
their products is really something that baffles all my attempts at
understanding and logic.
